Areas of Research Interests/ Research Projects

I am mainly interested in identifying, characterizing, and classifying new states of matter. My research is currently focused on quantum systems where strong correlation effect or topological character plays an important role in understanding their low energy and long wave-length physics. These kinds of quantum systems include quantum spin liquids, high temperature superconductors, quantum Hall systems, non-Fermi liquids, topological insulators and superconductors.
