Lan Tran is a postdoc with Professor Dominika Zgid at the University of Michigan. He obtained his B.Sc. in Theoretical Physics at Hue University of Sciences, Vietnam, in 2007. He received his M.Sc. in Materials Science at Hanoi National University, Vietnam, in 2010. He received his Ph.D. in quantum chemistry at the Graduate University for Advanced Studies, Japan, in 2014 under the supervision of Professor Takeshi Yanai.
His research mainly focuses on the developments of methods for strongly correlated systems. He was developing the linear response theory for density matrix renormalization group (DMRG) and applying to molecular magnetic properties. He also has a background in relativistic quantum chemistry. He is now working on the development of self-energy embedding theory (SEET) which is a Green’s function based embedding method
