Gabriel Kotliar, Ph.D.

CEO (Scientific Director)

Gabriel Kotliar initiated Comscope in 2015 and is its Scientific Director. He holds a Board of Governors Professor Chair in the Physics Department at Rutgers University and a part-time position at Brookhaven National Lab. He is one of the founding fathers of dynamical mean field theory (DMFT) and is well known for his fundamental contributions to the theory of strongly correlated electron systems - the theory of the Mott transition, superconductivity in strongly correlated electron systems, Hund's metals, the electronic structure of transition metal oxides, lanthanides and actinides, and the development of first principles approaches for predicting physical properties of these materials. Together with Managing Director Robert Konik, Gabriel Kotliar provides the strategic direction for the center.

Gabriel Kotliar has been a Fellow of the American Physical Society since 2001. He has organized and served on the advisory board for numerous conferences and meetings, and has coauthored over two hundred publications in refereed journals.
