Joaquín E. Drut


Associate Professor & Melchor Fellow

I was born and raised in La Plata, Argentina, about 60 km southeast of Buenos Aires. I moved to Seattle in September 2003 to attend the Physics Ph.D. program at the University of Washington.


Soon after my graduation, in March of 2008, I became a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Nuclear Theory group at The Ohio State University, in Columbus, OH.


From October 2010 to June 2012, I worked in the Theoretical Division at Los Alamos National Laboratory, in Los Alamos, NM, as Director’s Postdoctoral Fellow.


In July 2012, I became an Assistant Professor (and Melchor Fellow) in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH).

As of July 2018, I am an Associate Professor and Melchor Fellow at UNC-CH.
