Bogdan Mihaila joined the Division of Physics at the National Science Foundation in 2013. Prior to his NSF appointment, he served on the scientific staff at Los Alamos National Laboratory.

Dr. Mihaila earned a Diploma in Engineering Physics from the University of Bucharest in 1989 and a Doctorate in Theoretical Physics from the University of New Hampshire in 1998. His research concerns applications of many-body theory to cold atoms, condensed matter, nuclear and high-energy physics. At LANL he worked also on topics of materials science and developed physics-based simulations in support of process modeling and engineering. He was elected a Fellow of the American Physical Society in 2011.
