Dr Gunnar Möller (TH Fellow) receives a Royal Society University Research Fellowship

18 February 2014

Gunnar MollerOur congratulations go to Trinity Hall fellow Dr Gunnar Möller who has been awarded a prestigious University Research Fellowship by the Royal Society. The award will support Dr Möller's research in numerical simulations of emergent behaviour in strongly correlated phases of matter. As one central premise of this work, Dr Möller believes that nature's quirks have to be taken as a given when teaching physics to computers. Hence, his theory builds on a qualitative understanding of emergent collective phenomena such as superconductivity, for example. This initial understanding serves as the foundation for thorough quantitative models involving innovative computer algorithms that bridge the gap between the microscopic scales of correlation and the macroscopic extent of emergent properties.

The University Research Fellowship scheme aims to provide outstanding scientists, who have the potential to become leaders in their chosen fields, with the opportunity to build an independent research career. The scheme is extremely competitive and URFs are expected to be strong candidates for permanent posts in universities at the end of their fellowships.
