Eduardo da Silva Neto

Eduardo da Silva Neto is Assistant Professor of Physics. His research spans the experimental study of quantum materials from unconventional superconductors to topological materials, with possible applications to next-generation quantum computers and energy-efficient technologies. To study intertwined interactions between electrons in these quantum materials, he employs a suite of experimental techniques that include low-temperature scanning tunneling microscopy/spectroscopy, resonant (inelastic) x-ray scattering, angle-resolved photoemission and piezoelectric uniaxial strain. His academic work has been published in journals such as Science, Nature and Physical Review, among others. In 2019, he was awarded an NSF Career Award and the Sloan Research Fellowship in Physics. Professor da Silva Neto joins Yale from UC Davis, where he was an assistant professor in Physics. Prior to that he was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of British Columbia’s Quantum Matter Institute, during which time he was a Max Planck-UBC postdoctoral fellow and a Global Scholar for the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research. Professor da Silva Neto holds a Ph.D. and M.S. in Physics from Princeton University and a B.A. in Physics and Mathematics from Amherst College.
