Research Interest

I am a condensed matter theorist. I am interested in studying quantum mechanical systems with a large number of degrees of freedom and how the constituent degrees of freedom cooperate with each other to realize amazing emergent phenomena. One major direction of my work is to study electronic systems with strong interaction. Surprisingly, strongly correlated electrons in various experimental systems can sometimes (for example, fractional quantum Hall effect) be understood from collective degrees of freedom which are fundamentally different from electronic degrees of freedom. I am also interested in frustrated magnets where such fascinating physics may be realized.

My research topics include: topological order in strongly correlated systems; tensor network representation and numerical simulation; exotic quantum phase transitions.
