Yongxin Yao

Position
  • Adjunct Associate Professor
  • Scientist III
I am a theoretical and computational physicist, developing methods, algorithms, and codes to address condensed matter physics and materials science problems. With a degree of B.S. in department of intensive instruction in 2000 and M.S. in physics in 2003 from Nanjing University, China, I obtained his Ph.D. in physics from Iowa State University in 2009. After graduation, I took a postdoc position in Ames Laboratory. I was promoted to assistant scientist in 2011, associate scientist in 2015, and senior theoretical physicist in 2019, with an adjunct faculty position in department of Physics and Astronomy at Iowa State University. I am currently leading projects in the development of quantum computing approaches to solve ground state and dynamical properties of correlated quantum materials within the Gutzwiller quantum-classical embedding framework. I am also a key developer of the Gutzwiller density functional theory and rotationally-invariant Slave-Boson method and software.
