 Educational Background/Employment:
  • Ph.D. Boston University, 2011; advisor: Claudio Chamon

Research Interests:

  • Strongly correlated low-dimensional electrons (Luttinger liquids, CFT, etc.)
  • Frustrated magnetism (itinerant magnets, spin ice, etc.)
  • Quantum Hall effect and topological phases (fractionalization, topological defects, etc.)
  • Nonequilibrium many-body quantum dynamics (noisy systems, optimal quantum control, etc.)
  • Many-body entanglement (topological order, etc.)
