Matthias Geilhufe got his Ph.D from Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (Germany) in December 2015. As a PhD student he was employed at the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics in Halle (Saale).
Matthias' research is based on the development and application of methods for the theoretical investigation of materials. In the focus are approaches based on density functional theory or group theory. He is mainly interested in magnetic properties of materials and in describing materials with a Dirac-like dispersion relation for the quasiparticles near the Fermi surface.
In the future Matthias will apply modern approaches, e.g. based on data mining or machine learning to characterize and predict Dirac materials.
