Research Interests

I am a condensed matter physicist broadly interested in the non-equilibrium dynamics of isolated quantum systems. In this context, I have studied the universal dynamics near critical points, the dynamics in topological phases and more recently, the interplay of interactions and localization. I am also interested in the entanglement structures of topological phases.
