Research Interests:
The interplay of strong inter-particle interactions, quantum entanglement, and quenched randomness can lead to many interesting low temperature phenomena in condensed matter systems. Liquid-like highly entangled states of frustrated quantum magnets with competing interactions is one example of current interest. Some of our work employs computational and analytical studies of relatively simple model systems to capture key aspects of this physics and develop some insight. Another strand of our work analyzes the phenomenology of particular materials to understand their underlying physics in relatively tractable terms. A third strand of work involves the development of efficient Monte Carlo algorithms for such systems. Other interests include the physics of quantum devices, statistical mechanics of random systems, and stochastic dynamics.
