I am a theoretical condensed matter physicist, concerned with how the quantum behaviour of electrons in materials leads to all sorts of strange emergent phenomena. Below are just a few of the particular areas I work in. More details can be found by looking at my publications or my blog. For an open access collection of my publications try the arxiv.
Topological insulators and superconductors 
  • Majorana bound states in one and two dimensional systems
  • Superconducting proximity effect in topologically protected surface states
  • Inverse proximity effects in superconductors from topological insulators
  • Effect of interactions on topologically protected states
  • Non-equilibrium topological insulators and superconductors
  • Effect of disorder on topological insulators and superconductors
  • Kink states in bilayer graphene
  • Anti-ferromagnetic spintronics
  • Ferroelectrics
  • Domain walls and skyrmions
  • Domain wall motion in wires
  • Electron mediated domain wall interactions
  • Ordering of domain walls
  • Effect of electron correlations on domain wall structure and motion
Dynamics and thermalization
  • Dynamics of non-Hermitian systems
  • Thermalization and dynamics in closed and open quantum systems
  • Dynamical phase transitions
Quantum information of topological materials 
  • Entanglement entropy and fidelity of topological systems
