Areas of Interest

  • Condensed Matter Theory
  • Strongly Correlated Electronic Systems
  • Unconventional Superconductivity

Current Research

Our group works on developing theoretical description of material systems with strongly correlated electrons, unconventional superconductors, magnetism and materials showing non trivial topological properties. We utilize quantum many body theoretical methods to understand the microscopic physics of these quantum materials. Our research is motivated by experiments such as scanning tunneling microscopy, neutron scattering, Angle resolved photo-emission spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy among others.
