Research Interests

I am a condensed matter theorist working on topological phases, graphene, fractional quantum Hall effect, quantum information concepts such as entanglement and matrix-product states/tensor networks used to describe condensed matter systems, nonequilibrium quantum dynamics of interacting disordered systems, etc.
