Dima Kharzeev appointed Distinguished Professor  
Congratulations Distinguished Professor Dr. Dmitri Kharzeev

Dr. Kharzeev was one of eight faculty from Stony Brook University that were selected by the SUNY Board of Trustees for its highest honor - the rank of Distinguished Professor. More information can be found here.

Dr. Kharzeev is nationally and internationally recognized as one of the world's leading theorists in nuclear physics. He is best known for his groundbreaking work on the Chiral Magnetic Effect (CME) - the induction of electric current parallel to an external magnetic field in the presence of imbalance between the right- and left-handed particles. CME is currently studied in heavy ion collisions at Brookhaven National Laboratory. Though the theory behind CME was initially developed in the context of nuclear physics, it has far-reaching implications for condensed matter physics, astrophysics and cosmology. Based on Dr. Kharzee's prediction, he and a team of condensed matter scientists at BNL discovered CME in a new class of chiral materials. This discovery points to a range of potential applications in sensing, quantum computing, and medical imaging. Dr. Kharzeev is a highly cited author of about 200 scientific publications. He is a Fellow of AAAS and APS, and has several prestigious awards.
