Research interests

I am interested in novel forms of matter emerging in systems of many particles that behave quantum mechanically. I seek to discover new physical phenomena in strongly correlated electronic materials, nanoscale devices, superconductors, and ultracold atomic gases − often working at the interfaces of these domains.

My current research is on topological phases, exploring realisations in all the above areas. These are among the most exotic phases of matter, with "protected" boundary modes and sometimes "anyonic" particles, linked to real-world applications such as state-of-the-art metrology or prospects in quantum computation.

CV & Publications

A brief CV is available here. My publications are listed on the arXiv.


I currently teach a 4th year (masters level) module on phase transitions and critical phenomena.
