I'm an Assistant Professor in Department of Physics, Yale UniversityMy research mainly falls into the broad subject of topological phases of quantum matter. The exciting development in this area of condensed matter physics during the past three decades has completely changed the way we think about many-body systems, in particular strongly-correlated systems. 

For more details, see my publications.

Recent areas of focus include:
  • Solid state realizations of non-abelian anyons
  • Transport properties of topological superconductors
  • Theory of topological phases
