Dominika Zgid is an assistant professor at the University of Michigan. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Waterloo, Canada, in 2008. Since starting at Michigan, she has received a DOE Early Career Award in 2013 and an NSF Career Award in 2015.
Her main interests are at the interface of theoretical chemistry and condensed matter physics with a major focus on designing new, systematically improvable and controlled computational methods that can be used to study strongly correlated molecules and materials. She has worked on variety of topics, such as a molecular version of density matrix renormalization group, solvers for dynamical mean field theory using explicit bath formulation, conserving Green’s function methods for weakly correlated systems and the development of the self-energy embedding theory.
