Fiona Burnell Teaches Condensed Matter Physics in Quantum Regimes

Nov 27, 2018

Fiona Burnell is an assistant professor of physics at the University of Minnesota where she researches condensed matter physics — that is, how materials behave at very low temperatures, in regimes where quantum mechanics plays an important role in determining their properties.  Her current focus is on using mathematics to understand new types of properties that materials could have, and helping to understand how to create new materials with these properties.
