Francis Paraan

Assistant Professor

Francis' research interests in condensed matter physics and statistical physics include entanglement in many-body systems and parallel computing. In particular, he is interested in the relationship between entanglement entropy and the entropy of effective thermal models. He is also working with his students to develop low-cost high-performance computing capabilities in a heterogeneous cluster for small- and medium-scale numerical tasks.

He is currently the program coordinator of SanD.
