Nader Zaki


Nader Zaki joined Comscope and the electron spectroscopy group of the Brookhaven Nation Laboratory in 2016 as a postdoctoral fellow. He is investigating strongly correlated, topological, and thermoelectric materials using both synchrotron and laser-excited angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy. In collaboration with Comscope code developers, his measurements are used to check the validity and accuracy of the Comsuite. His research background is in 1-D and 2-D materials using ARPES, STM, and DFT. This includes previous experience with experimentally testing and challenging the predictions and capabilities of available theoretical tools. In addition, he is also interested in developing and enhancing the current state-of-the-art spectroscopy tools.
