Laura Classen is a postdoc at the Fine Theoretical Physics Institute of the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis. Previously, she worked as a Research Associate in the Condensed Matter Department at Brookhaven National Laboratory, New York. She received her doctoral degree in theoretical physics from the University of Heidelberg, Germany. In her research, she studies collective phenomena in correlated electron systems. For example, she is interested in the mechanisms behind electronic phase formations and the physics of quantum phase transitions.


Geometry Rescues Superconductivity in Twisted Graphene

Three papers connect the superconducting transition temperature of a graphene-based material to the geometry of its electronic wave functions. Read More »
