Corey Melnick

Software Developer

Corey Melnick is a postdoctoral researcher in the Condensed Matter Physics and Materials Science division of Brookhaven National Laboratory. He joined Comscope in the summer of 2018 in order to advance the Quantum Monte Carlo impurity solver for Comsuite, and to apply Comsuite algorithms in order to answer some of the many open and complex problems in the exciting field of strongly correlated materials. He enjoys the challenge presented by this work and the collaborative approach taken by the center. Prior to joining Brookhaven National Laboratory, Corey Melnick investigated electron-phonon coupling and their non-equilibrium dynamics at the University of Michigan as a Ph.D. student and postdoctoral researcher.
