Prof. Steven JohnstonI am an assistant professor of theoretical condensed matter physics in the Department of Physics and Astronomy and a member of the Joint Institute for Advanced Materials . My research interests lie in condensed matter physics with a focus on applying numerical methods to strongly correlated electrons, multi-orbital systems, and electron-boson interactions. I have a specific interest in studying high-temperature superconductivity in both the iron-pnictides and cuprates. I often work towards making direct contact with spectroscopies such as angle-resolved photoemission, scanning tunneling microscopy, optical conductivity, and resonant inelastic x-ray scattering, and collaborate closely with experimentalists in order to unravel the meaning of results obtained using these complicated techniques.
