Adrianus M.M. Pruisken
University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Adrianus M M Pruisken completed his PhD from Brown University. After postdoctoral studies at Heidelberg University and being a Member at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton he joined the Columbia University faculty in New York. His current research interests cover the topological and non-perturbative aspects of quantum field theory, primarily focused on applications in condensed matter physics and statistical mechanics. He has contributed to a variety of fields including quantum critical phenomena, Anderson localization and interaction phenomena, the quantum Hall effect, the Coulomb blockade, single electron transistors and quantum spin chains. He is the Lead Researcher of many of the ground breaking experiments, conducted at Princeton and Amsterdam, on the nature of the quantum Hall plateau transition.
