Welcome new Mossman Fellow

February 14, 2022

Dr. Murat Kologlu will be joining the department in the fall as the 2022 Mossman Postdoctoral Fellow.

Murat obtained his PhD at Caltech in 2019 under the guidance of David Simmons-Duffin. Since graduating from Caltech he has been a postdoctoral associate at the University of Oxford. Murat specializes in theoretical high-energy physics and string theory. His main interest is in conformal field theories and their applications to various systems spanning quantum gravity, high-energy physics, and condensed matter. Recently, Murat has been working on understanding behavior of conformal theories at finite temperature and applications of light-ray operators to collider physics. He will be working with Prof. Ian Moult and Prof. David Poland.
