About my research

I work in theoretical condensed matter physics.

My main interest lies in strongly correlated electronic and atomic systems, that is, systems in which the interaction energy of the constituent particles is comparable to their kinetic energy. This regime displays very rich physics, and is relevant to many important systems, including the high temperature superconductors, fractional quantum Hall states, and quantum spin liquids, among others.

As an additional line of research, I am interested in applications of new ideas in condensed matter to the development of devices. For example, recent advances in our understanding of topological insulators may lead to techniques that will allow for the manipulation of electronic properties of materials using light.
