Robin Santra

ETH-FAST Fellow from January 15 - 16, 2013

Robin Santra   Robin Santra

Professor at Center for Free-Electron Laser Science, DESY, Hamburg, Germany

Robin Santra is a well-known theorist with over 95 publications who has earned several fellowships and awards throughout his career, e.g. the IUPAP Young Scientist Prize and the Presidential Early Career Award (PECASE). He studied physics in Germany at the University of Heidelberg. In 2001, he finished his dissertation in theoretical chemical physics with summa cum laude. After working at the University of Colorado and at Harvard University as a postdoctoral research associate, he joined Argonne National Laboratory in 2005 as a staff scientist. In 2008, he was appointed Associate Professor in the Department of Physics at the University of Chicago. In 2010, Robin Santra joined the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science as head of the CFEL Theory Division. He is a professor jointly appointed by the University of Hamburg and DESY.
Robin Santra's research covers the areas of Theoretical Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics and Theoretical Chemical Physics. He is particularly interested in the ionization dynamics and inner-shell physics of atoms, molecules, and clusters; strong-field and electron-correlation effects in the EUV and X-ray regimes; applications of short-wavelength free-electron lasers; ultrafast laser-induced phenomena; electronic many-body theory; and non-Hermiticity in quantum mechanics.
