Research Interests

The overarching goal of my research is the theoretical and computational study of strongly correlated electron systems, and the understanding of the complexity that emerges from these systems at the nanoscale. Within this theme, my research comprises classical systems, spin-fermion models and fully quantum mechanical models.
