Research Interest

My research activities focus on the strongly correlated physics and topological physics in various quantum many-body systems. I prefer combining numerical simulations with analytical calculations to fully understand correlated physics. The detailed directions cover but are not limited to the doped Mott insulators, the quantum Hall effect, the quantum spin liquids, the quantum ergodicity and its breaking mechanisms, etc. I am also interested in new directions with exotic physics, the numerical algorithms for strongly correlated problems, and the connection of quantum computations with condensed-matter physics.
