We are very excited to have our next speaker at the QSQM Junior Researcher Hour who will share his journey and experiences from his early career in academia.
Please join us for a virtual talk on Friday, December 3 at 9am (PT) / 11am (CT) by Dr. Anshul Kogar, Assistant Professor in Physics and Astronomy at UCLA. The presentation will be followed by Q&A time with participants.
Check out Dr. Kogar's blog, This Condensed Life on various topics in quantum and condensed matter physics.
More about Anshul Kogar:
Anshul Kogar is an experimental condensed matter physicist. He joined the faculty and started his research lab at UCLA in the fall of 2019. He received his B.S. in Physics from UCLA and obtained a Ph.D. in condensed matter physics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. During his Ph.D., while working in the lab of Prof. Peter Abbamonte, he and co-workers developed a spectroscopic technique known as momentum-resolved electron energy loss spectroscopy (M-EELS). They used this technique to provide substantial evidence for exciton condensation in 1T-TiSe2. From 2016-2019, Professor Kogar was a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Nuh Gedik at MIT. There, he worked on using intense, ultrafast light pulses to induce non-equilibrium states of matter. In particular, he showed, using ultrafast electron diffraction, that photons can be used to induce a charge density wave in LaTe3.
