Igor F. Herbut

Igor Herbut is a professor of theoretical physics at Simon Fraser University, in Burnaby, British Columbia, in Canada. He studied physics in Belgrade and Baltimore, and received his Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University in 1995. He has held visiting appointments at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics, Max Planck Institute, and University of Tokyo. Herbut’s recent research has been focused on gauge theories of high-temperature superconductivity, and the effects of electron correlations and disorder in graphene. He has also authored a graduate textbook on the theory of phase transitions for Cambridge University Press.
