David J. Luitz Condensed Matter Theory

Picture of David Luitz


I am a condensed matter theorist leading the research group Computational Quantum Many-body Physics at the Max-Planck-Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems in Dresden, Germany.

I studied strongly correlated quantum matter as a European Union Marie Skłodowska Curie Fellow at Technische Universität München in the group of Frank Pollmann until March 2018. Before, I conducted my research as a Gordon and Betty Moore Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the group of Eduardo Fradkin. Until September 2015, I was a postdoc with Fabien Alet and Nicolas Laflorencie at the Université Paul Sabatier in Toulouse and earned a PhD from Universität Würzburg in 2013, supervised by Fakher Assaad.
