Some key words
I am a theoretical physicist trying to contribute to this enticing field of science. My research interests revolve around theoretical condensed matter physics with a particular emphasis on topological phases of matter. Relevant keywords describing my recent work include: Topological insulators, zero-mode physics, monodromy defects, spin-charge separation, solitons, topological classification of order, Green's function formalism, lattice gauge theory, impurity problems, out-of-equilibrium phases and spinon hybridization problems. Nonetheless, I think that in modern science a broad and sometimes even interdisciplinary area of research, in addition to a specific long-term subject of focus, is a prerequisite. In this regard I have also worked on quantum nematic phases and try to maintain an active and open view.
