TRR 227 project leader Dr. Sangeeta Sharma has been appointed as professor in the field of "Theoretical Solid State Physics"
We are delighted to announce that on June 26, 2023, Dr. Sangeeta Sharma has been installed as a professor at FU Berlin, in a joint appointment with the Max Born Institute.
News from Jul 10, 2023
As theoretical physicist, Sangeeta Sharma received her PhD from the Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee, in 2000 and, after postdoctoral positions at Uppsala University, Karl Franzens University in Graz, Freie Universität Berlin and the Max Planck Institute for Microstructure Physics in Halle, was head of a research group at the MPI for Microstructure Physics before moving to a group leader position at the Max Born Institute in 2018.
Prof. Sharma is an expert in ab initio calculations of the electronic properties of solids, especially during and after interaction with laser pulses. She is one of the main developers of the ELK program package, which is used worldwide for ab initio calculations using density functional theory. She leads several externally funded projects, among others project A04 of our Collaborative Research Center CRC/TRR227 "Ultrafast Spin Dynamics". In the Leibniz Best Minds Program for Women Professors, she was successful with her project "Ultrafast charge, spin, and nuclear dynamics in complex magnetic materials", which she will carry out with her team over the next five years. At the Max Born Institute, Prof. Sharma will head the department " Theory for Dynamics in Quantum Materials".
We congratulate Sangeeta Sharma for being a new S Professor at the Physics Department of FU Berlin !
