Research Interests

The emergence of new physical laws describing the collective behavior of simple, electronic constituents. These laws come in the form of wave functions for superconducting matter or quantum Hall states, and effective field theory, more generally.


My recent interests have been in the following three areas:

  • metallic criticality
  • topologically ordered systems
  • entanglement in many-body systems
