Research Interests: 

Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics

My interest lies in quantum materials where novel effects arise from either topological properties of the wavefunction or interparticle interactions. My goal is to provide a theoretical understanding of how these two factors manifest themselves in physical observables, particularly in magnetoresponse and transport. I like to work on problems that are experimentally relevant. Systems of interest include 2D van der Waals systems (e.g., twisted bilayer graphene), topological insulators and semimetals (e.g., Weyl semimetals), and certain correlated systems (e.g., Kondo insulator SmB6).
