Research Interests

I am interested in exotic quantum phases of matter, especially those arising from strongly correlated many-body systems. In particular I am interested in topological phases of matter, quantum spin liquids, quantum Hall effects, quantum phase transitions and related topics in quantum field theories such as anomalies and dualities.
