Research Interest

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).
