If you are interested in pursuing a MSc degree, please apply to the Perimeter Scholars International (PSI) masters program. If you are interested in working with me as a PhD student, please send me an email at [email protected].
I am interested in topological phases of matter and the interplay of nontrivial electronic structure topology and electron-electron interactions. Both interactions and topology may lead to macroscopic quantum phenomena and their interplay may lead to the most interesting ones, as experience with the fractional quantum Hall effect tells us.
