Topological States of Matter








                   Dmitri E. Feldman
Associate Professor of Physics

Professor Feldman joined the Brown Physics Department in 2003. A graduate of the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, he received his Ph.D. from the Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics in 1998. He did his postdoctoral research at the Weizmann Institute of Science and Argonne National Laboratory. He received the Koshland Scholar Award from the Weizmann Institute and a CAREER Award from NSF.


Theoretical condensed matter physics with emphasis on topological materials, strongly correlated electrons in low-dimensional systems, and quenched disorder in hard and soft condensed matter.
