Hello! I am a theoretical condensed matter physicist, currently appointed as a Moore foundation postdoctoral scholar at the Institute for Condensed Matter Theory of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In August 2018, I will start as an Assistant Professor at University of Florida.

I obtained my PhD in August 2015 from University of Wisconsin-Madison.  I was advised by Prof. Andrey V. Chubukov.   The focus of my graduate research was the physics of quantum criticality and high-Tc superconductivity. During my postdoc, other than the topics above, I have also been working on the field of topological phases of matter, focusing on novel topological superconducting phases and semimetal phases. I am also interested in formal aspects of quantum field theory.

Here are all my papers on arXiv.org. Selected works of mine can be found under the "Publications" tab. You can also find more detailed explanations of my works under the "Presentations" tab.
