Dr. Bagayoko is a fellow of the National Society of Black Physicists (NSBP), he earned the BS degree in Physics and Chemistry from the Ecole Normale Supérieure (ENSup) of Bamako, Mali, the MS in Physics from Lehigh University, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and the Ph.D. in condensed matter theory from Louisiana State University (LSU), under the supervision of the late Boyd Professor Joseph Callaway. Highly interested in collaborations on ab-initio, predictive calculations of properties of materials, with emphasis on nanostructures, semiconductors, and novel materials (bi-, ter- and quaternary systems, biomaterials, etc.). Equally interested in exchanges with experimentalists in the search for novel materials.
