Kristjan Haule, Ph.D.

software developer

Kristjan Haule is Professor of Physics at Rutgers University. He obtained his undergraduate education in Slovenia (University of Ljubljana, BSC 1997) and his Ph.D. (2002) in Slovenia and in Karlsruhe University (Germany). He was appointed Assistant Professor of Physics at Rutgers in 2005 and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2009 and University Professor in 2012.

Kristjan Haule's research specialties are in condensed matter theory, with major interests in electronic structure theory for correlated electron solids and algorithm development which combines the dynamical mean field theory and density functional theory. He is especially known for the development of predictive theories for correlated electron solids and the implementation of a powerful Embedded DMFT code (EDMFTF). Kristjan Haule joined Comscope in 2015 and supports the center with his EDMFTF software.

In 2008-2010 Kristjan Haule was an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellow, he received the NSF Early Career Award in 2008, The Rutgers Board of Trustees award for Scholarly Excellence in 2009 and the Blavatnik Award for Young Scientists in 2013 for theoretical and computational studies of strongly correlated electron systems. He is PI on numerous NSF and DOE projects. Kristjan Haule published over 100 scientific papers with an h-index of 35 and achieved over 1,000 citations a year since 2014.
