About Gregory Fiete
Greg Fiete received his PhD in theoretical physics from Harvard University, and did postdoctoral work at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics at UC Santa Barbara. He was a Lee A. DuBridge Prize Fellow in Theoretical Physics at Caltech. He is a recipient of the NSF CAREER Award, the DARPA Young Faculty Award, a DARPA Director’s Fellowship, the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE), a Simons Fellowship in Theoretical Physics, and a Bessel Research Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. He is an elected Fellow of the American Physical Society.
The Fiete lab has broad interests in condensed matter physics that range from confined electrons at the nanoscale to frustrated magnetism in macroscopic samples. Their research focuses primarily on interaction effects in quantum many-body systems. The theoretical methods they use range from numerics to powerful non-perturbative analytical techniques. Often experiments are a strong motivation for the problems they work on.
