Research Interests

Our group is interested in a wide variety of theoretical physics problems of low-temperature quantum systems. In particular, we specialize in condensed matter theory of topological quantum materials motivated by their use for topologically protected quantum computing. We are also especially interested in superconductor-semiconductor hybrids for “conventional” quantum computing. For more information, see our website.


We are currently looking for motivated students (grad & undergrad) interested in theoretical quantum condensed matter physics and quantum information. If interested, please send us an email! Our group uses a mixture of analytical and numerical tools, such as bosonization techniques, Green functions, conformal field theory, random matrix theory, exact diagonalization and DMRG.
