I have been studying non-equilibrium physics and quantum gravity in terms of quantum entanglement:
We have proposed how to construct geometry in gravity dual of entanglement structure.
We have been studying the relation between Einstein eq. and constraint for entanglement entropy.
We have been studying thermal properties of entanglement entropy.
We have been studying how scrambling effect affects structure of entanglement.
Currently, I am strongly interested in properties of theories with strong scrambling effect in low energy limit. Also, I am strongly interested in the physics beyond AdS/CFT correspondence.

My research activities focus on quantum many-body problems in condensed matters especially strongly correlated electronic systems. One major direction is to understand the physics of exotic phases of matter and the phase transitions. The areas I studied include fractional quantum Hall systems, the doped Mott insulators, the frustrated magnetic systems and the heavy fermion systems. I am also interested in the computational condensed matter methods, including density matrix renormalization group (DMRG), exact diagonalization (ED), numerical renormalization group (NRG).
