Dr. Lea F. Santos is a Professor of Physics with a Ph.D. in theoretical physics from the University of São Paulo. Postdoctoral experience included work in random matrix theory at Yale, and developing new dynamical decoupling techniques at Dartmouth College. She is a member of the APS, IOP, IAMP, AAPT, Anacapa Society, and Committee of the Concerned Scientist.
Research interests include quantum transport, thermalization of isolated and open quantum systems, localization, metal-insulator transition, quantum chaos, two-body random ensembles, spin systems, dynamics of fermionic and bosonic systems with correlated and uncorrelated on-site disorder, quantum control, dynamical decoupling methods, decoherence, quantum-classical transition, measurement problem, and foundations of quantum mechanics.
Accolades include grants from the National Science Foundation, member of the APS LeRoy Apker Award selection committee, election as member-at-large of the Forum of Physics and Society of the American Physical Society, and selection as a KITP Scholar. She was also selected as a member of the U.S. delegation to the Third IUPAP International Conference on Women in Physics.
