Daniel Sheehy received a B.A. in physics from The Johns Hopkins University in 1995, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in physics from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign in 1998 and 2001, respectively. After holding postdoctoral research positions at the University of British Columbia, the University of Colorado, and Iowa State University, in 2007 he arrived in Baton Rouge to become an assistant professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Louisiana State University. His research interests include high-temperature superconductors, graphene, and cold atomic gases. In 2009 he was recognized as an Outstanding Referee by the American Physical Society.
I study the theoretical physics of quantum many-particle systems in which interactions are qualitatively important and lead to novel behavior. Examples of the systems I am interested in include Bose-Einstein condensates and paired fermion superfluidity, that are phenomena from the realm of ultracold atoms, as well as condensed-matter systems such as graphene (a one-atom thick layer of carbon with interesting electronic properties), heavy-fermion materials, and high-temperature superconductors.
