Dr. Yao is a theoretical and computational physicist, developing methods, algorithms, and codes to address condensed matter physics and materials science problems. With a degree of B.S. in department of intensive instruction in 2000 and M.S. in physics in 2003 from Nanjing University, China, he obtained his Ph.D. in physics from Iowa State University in 2009. After graduation, he took a postdoc position in Ames Laboratory. He was promoted to assistant scientist in 2011, associate scientist in 2015, and senior theoretical physicist in 2019, with an adjunct faculty position in department of Physics and Astronomy at Iowa State University. He is currently leading projects in the development of quantum computing approaches to solve ground state and dynamical properties of correlated quantum materials within the Gutzwiller quantum-classical embedding framework. He is also a key developer of the Gutzwiller density functional theory and rotationally-invariant Slave-Boson method and software.
Joshua Turner is a staff scientist at the Stanford Institute for Materials and Energy Sciences, a joint institute between Stanford University and SLAC, as well as at the Linac Coherent Light Source, the world’s first x-ray free electron laser (XFEL) based at SLAC.
He received both a BS in Physics and a BA in Mathematics from UC Santa Barbara, a MA in Physics from Boston University specializing in instrumentation constructed at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) for magnetic spectroscopy, and a PhD in Physics from the University of Oregon. During his doctoral studies, Joshua was an Advanced Light Source Doctoral Fellow at LBNL where he built a coherent scattering endstation to study fluctuations in quantum materials. He also spent time as a visiting researcher at the Brookhaven National Laboratory where his work focused on x-ray diffraction, inelastic scattering, and nanofabrication in strongly correlated materials. He then moved to Stony Brook University, NY to work as a postdoctoral fellow, lecturer, and then adjunct assistant professor, specializing in coherent imaging to investigate biological cells and nanoporous glass.
Josh is a leader in ultra-fast x-ray studies, which he has applied to an array of scientific fields, from chemistry and materials physics to the study of plasmas found in large planets and hot astrophysical objects. His most recent focus is on an innovative technology which utilizes new modes of the XFEL and can be used to examine subtle fluctuations in materials using short, coherent x-ray pulses. This will advance the frontier in quantum materials through the observation of novel types of order found in exotic systems such as topological magnets, unconventional superconductors, and strongly spin-orbit coupled Mott insulators. He is the recipient of the Department of Energy’s Early Career Award, a prestigious award granted to further the individual research programs of outstanding scientists with demonstrated successful research activities and potential for solving important problems to the U. S. government. He has published over 100 scientific articles with one-third of them in high-profile journals.
