Muhammad Aziz Majidi, Ph.D. was born in Jakarta on July 4th, 1969. He received a Sarjana degree (equivalent to B.Sc. plus) in Physics in 1993 from Department of Physics, University of Indonesia, and a master's degree in 1997, in the same field from the same department. Further, he was selected to participate in the Diploma Programme on Condensed Matter Physics held by ICTP, in Trieste, Italy (1997-1998). He received his Ph.D. degree from the Physics Department, University of Cincinnati, USA, in 2006, with a dissertation entitled Computational Studies of Ferromagnetism in Strongly Correlated Electronic Systems (under advisory of Prof. Mark Jarrell). Before returning to Indonesia, he had worked as a postdoctoral research associate (2006-2008) at Physics Dept. of University of North Dakota, USA (under supervision of Prof. Juana Moreno).
Dr. Majidi is a member of the Condensed-Matter Physics group and his field of interest is Theoretical-Computational Condensed Matter Physics. His research focuses on modeling of strongly correlated systems such as manganites, cuprates, and dilute magnetic semiconductors, and recently, also graphene, to predict their thermodynamic, transport, and optical properties. In most of his research, he employs the method of Dynamical Mean Field Theory (DMFT) and its extentions. At present some of his research is in collaboration with Prof. Andrivo Rusydi's research group of the Department of Physics, National University of Singapore (NUS).
