Park-Hyowon-JoinFaculty2014The department of physics welcomes new faculty member Assistant Professor Hyowon Park to the Department and to UIC. Professor Park earned his PhD in computational condensed matter and materials physics at Rudgers and did his postdoctoral work at Columbia University. Professor Park works on a wide range of topics including combining dynamical mean field theory (DMFT) and density functional theory (DFT), studying realistic materials exhibiting strong correlations such as nickelates, cuprates, and cobaltates, studying the mechanism of the correlation-driven metal-insulator transition in rare-earth-element nickelates, and developing methodologies to compute the total energy of realistic materials.
