Dr. Davis directs a lab in the Department of Physics at Cornell University, and also serves as a Professor of Physics at St. Andrews University in Scotland and as a Senior Physicist at Brookhaven National Laboratory. His research focuses on macroscopic quantum physics of emergent quantum matter including studies of superconductors, superfluids, supersolids, spin liquids, monopole liquids, topological condensates and heavy fermions. He has achieved a number of significant findings, including quantized circulation in superfluid 3He, ‘third sound’ in two-dimensional superfluid 3He, the superfluid Josephson Effect, the superfluid DC-SQUID, the d-symmetry density wave state of cuprate superconductors, the nematic state of iron-pnictide superconductors, and the magnetic Cooper pairing mechanism for heavy fermion superconductivity. Dr. Davis has won various awards, including the Outstanding Performance Award of the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, the Science & Technology Award of Brookhaven National Lab, the H. Kamerlingh-Onnes Memorial Prize, and the Fritz London Memorial Prize. Dr. Davis earned his PhD from University of California in Berkeley.
