Areas of research:
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 submit an application directly to my department at the University of Waterloo and indicate that you would like to be supervised by me. Perimeter Institute is committed to diversity within its community and I welcome applications from underrepresented groups.
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.
