Area of Research:  Condensed Matter Physics

Research Interest:
My research interest spans two separate areas in theoretical condensed matter physics. The first area involves study of properties of Dirac materials such as graphene and topological insulators. The low-energy quasiparticles of these materials obey Dirac-like equation which renders them with several unconventional properties. My main interest in this area involves understanding the implication of such properties on junctions and STM spectra of these materials. The second involves study of non-equilibrium phenomenon in closed strongly interacting quantum systems near a quantum critical point. In particular, I am interested in the possibility of using several ultracold atom systems as test beds to explore such phenomena.
