Adam Denchfield is a graduate student in physics at UIC working in Thrust 7: Superconductivity and Electronic and Magnetic Phenomena. He applies a variety of theoretical tools to understanding the properties of materials at very high pressures, including nonperturbative effects of electron-phonon and electron-electron interactions. Adam also explores the role of quantum effects in structural and charge-density-wave transitions in materials such as the rare earth tritellurides, nickelates, manganites, and superhydrides. In the study of superconductivity, he looks beyond Migdal-Eliashberg approaches, and is working on applications of techniques such as Dynamical Mean Field Theory (DMFT) for s-wave gaps.
