I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy of Stony Brook University. I am working in theoretical condensed matter physics. My main interests lie in the field of strongly correlated electron systems. In studying such systems, strong electron-electron interactions prevent the full use of perturbation theory, with famous examples being high temperature superconductors and quantum Hall systems. Therefore, "non-perturbative" method become essential for theoretical analysis. In particular, the "topological" properties of strongly correlated systems play an important role because they are insensitive to interaction strength and provide us with some universal properties both at weak and strong coupling. This field involves an interplay among condensed matter theory, modern quantum field theory, and mathematics.
