Condensed matter theory
My research is concerned with the fundamentally new classes of collective condensed matter behavior that emerge in complex materials. Recently, I have been particularly interested in new types of metallic behavior, so called "non Fermi liquid" physics, that develop in the heavy fermion and cuprate metals, together with the unusual magnetic and superconducting phases, they give rise to. Novel magnetism, the possibility of "odd-frequency superconductivity", Kondo insulators and the transport properties of cuprate superconductors are examples of areas of my recent research activity.
