Dr. Guido Martinelli is visiting us Dr. Guido Martinelli from Università di Roma La Sapienza is visiting the IFT for the period September 17th to 20th, 2018. His office number is 316. He is mostly known for his works on elementary particles and phenomenology, including strong and weak interactions, flavour physics, perturbative methods as well as lattice simulations and statistical mechanics.
Dr. Krissia Zawadzki is visiting us Dr. Krissia Zawadzki from Instituto de Fisica de Sao Carlos IFSC-USP is visiting the IFT for the period October 15th to December 14th, 2018. Her office number is 115. Her research interests are: strongly correlated systems, numerical methods for solving model Hamiltonians based on the renormalization-group techniques (NRG, DMRG, tensor networks), foundations of density-functional theory (DFT) and quantum thermodynamics. Topics of my current research include transport properties of single-electron transistors and the Kondo effect, the bridge between DFT and quantum information theory, statistics of out-of-equilibrium spin chains and the development of DFT-inspired protocols for assessing thermodynamical quantities. 
SO(IFT) Distinguished Prof. Nima Arkani-Hamed is visiting us Prof. Nima Arkani-Hamed from IAS – Princeton is visiting the IFT for the period September 19th to 21st, 2018. His office number is B03. One of the leading particle physics phenomenologists of his generation, Nima Arkani-Hamed is concerned with the relation between theory and experiment. His research has shown how the extreme weakness of gravity, relative to other forces of nature, might be explained by the existence of extra dimensions of space, and how the structure of comparatively low-energy physics is constrained within the context of string theory. He has taken a lead in proposing new physical theories that can be tested at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Switzerland. He will give the IFT Colloquium "Unification and Fundamental Physics: A status report" on 21st September at 12h at the CFTMAT auditorium (yellow room). More information:
SO(IFT) Research Associate Dr. Gary Shiu is visiting us Dr. Gary Shiu from Hong Kong U. & Wisconsin U., is visiting the IFT for the period September 17th to 21st, 2018. His office number is B09. His research interest are: String theory and its applications to particle physics and cosmology.
