AFFILIATIONS

University of Waterloo

PhD students who wish to be supervised by Perimeter Institute faculty normally apply through the PSI program. To apply directly to a PhD program, students should submit an application to the Physics and Astronomy Department at the University of Waterloo.

Students interested in pursuing an MSc degree should apply to Perimeter Institute's PSI program.

Research Interests

I am a condensed matter physicist working on quantum materials (in particular, Dirac materials, such as graphene and topological insulators), mesoscopic phenomena, and on quantum Hall effect and related topological phenomena. More recently, I became interested in quantum many-body dynamics and problems of thermalization and many-body localization. Many of my predictions were experimentally verified, and I often work in a close collaboration with experimentalists.
