Dr. Sanjoy Sarker is a Professor of Physics. He received his Ph.D. degree from Cornell University in 1980 and joined the faculty at the University of Alabama in 1984. He is engaged in theoretical research into the problem of highly correlated electron systems: high temperature cuprate superconductors and fullerenes, heavy fermions, as well as properties of transition metal oxides. He is particularly interested in metallic states that are characterized by long-range spin and charge density-wave order.
