The details


Adriana Moreo is an American physicist and educator, currently a professor in the Physics department at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, Tennessee. 

She pioneered advanced computational methods to elucidate how the magnetic and superconducting properties of copper- and iron-based high-temperature superconductors can be controlled by various experimental control parameters. Her research interests include Condensed Matter Physics, Material Science, Computational Physics, High Tc Superconductors, Strongly Correlated Electronic Systems, Manganites Colossal Magnetoresistance, Magnetism, and Numerical Methods.

Life, education, career

Moreo attended Instituto Balseiro, Bariloche, Argentina, from where she obtained her bachelor's degree (1983) and Ph.D. in Physics (1985).

After completing her education, Moreo was a Research Associate in Physics, University of Illinois, Urbana, Illinois (1985-1988.) From 1988-1991, she was a Research Associate in Physics, University of California, Santa Barbara, California. 

In 1992, Moreo joined the faculty of Florida State University, Tallahassee, Florida, where she served as an Assistant Professor (1992-1994), Associate Professor (1994-1999), and full Professor from 1999 to 2004. 

Since 2004, she is a Professor in the Physics department at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, Tennessee. The same year, she also joined the research staff at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
