Research Interests:

Quantum Many-Body Theory and Non-Equilibrium Systems

I am a condensed matter theorist with a strong interest in quantum many-body theory and non-equilibrium systems. My research interests include; strongly correlated phases of matter, topological order, entanglement in many-body systems, critical dynamics, Floquet dynamics, many-body localization and ultra-fast spectroscopic probes of dynamics. Most recently, I have been working on the description of thermalization and localization in interacting quantum systems and on the dynamics of periodically driven systems.
