I am Leon Balents, a theoretical physicist at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics, at the University of California, Santa Barbara.  You can see my somewhat up-to-date CV.

This is my group:

Grad students:

  • Jason Iaconis

  • Chunxiao Liu

Postdocs (free agents – I am learning from them as much as vice versa!):

  • Xiao Chen
  • Chao-Ming Jian
  • Timothy Hsieh
  • Gábor Halász
  • Jianpeng Liu
  • Louk Rademaker

Research in our group is supported by the National Science Foundation, NSF-DMR-15-06119, by the Department of Energy’s Basic Energy Sciences Division, DE-FG02-08ER46524, by the Army Research Office, W911NF-14-1-0379, by the Moore Foundation’s EPiQS initiative, GBMF4304.
