Research highlight

    I am broadly interested in the theoretical and computational aspects of density functional theory and its time-dependent counterpart. In particular, I am interested in its applications to systems in extreme conditions such as in high energy density settings. I am also interested in quantum condensed matter theory, especially many-body theory, and topological phases of matter.
