I am interested in exploring the ground states and collective properties associated with quantum condensed matter systems.  I have especially been fascinated by correlated electron materials, in which the low energy degrees of freedom behave qualitatively differently than a free electron gas.  The key challenge here lies in understanding the relationship between the microscopic physics and the phenomena which emerge in the long wavelength limit in such systems.  In order to understand this relationship more deeply, it will be essential to confront these problems using a wide variety of theoretical tools, ranging from non-perturbative computational techniques, to low energy effective field theory descriptions of universal properties.
