Nikolay Golubev

Assistant Professor of Physics

Ph.D. 2017, Heidelberg University, Germany

Fields of Study:
Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics and Condensed Matter Physics 

Research Interests:
Our research focuses on developing and applying theory and simulation methods to investigate the ultrafast quantum dynamics in atoms, molecules, and solids. We pursue an interdisciplinary research program that combines advanced theoretical approaches, efficient computational algorithms, and state-of-the-art high performance computing to study the fundamental physics behind the correlated motion of electrons and nuclei.

Honors and Awards:
Branco Weiss Fellowship – Society in Science, 2018 – 2023
Fellow of the International Max Planck Research School for Quantum Dynamics, 2013 – 2017
