Kaden Hazzard is an Assistant Professor of Physics at Rice University. He received his Ph.D. in 2010 from Cornell University, and he completed a postdoctoral fellowship at JILA. He is a theorist who is interested in quantum many-body systems, especially in ultracold matter. His group works at the locus of ultracold systems, condensed matter, and quantum information. Ongoing research is focused on studying far-from-equilibrium dynamics, developing new algorithms for computing properties of quantum systems, and partnering with experimentalists to develop novel atomic, molecular, and optical systems for quantum simulation and computation.
