I am condensed matter theorist. My main research interests are:
of strongly correlated electron systems, quantum phase transitions between them and,
in general, competition between classical and quantum ordering tendencies. Such a competition
is the driving force behind complicated phase diagrams of many frustrated quantum magnets -
this subject constitutes my main research topic.
I am also very interested in transport
properties of strongly correlated electrons, especially in low-dimensional geometries (quantum dots/wires and nanotubes).
