This is a series of eight lectures covering several aspects of electronic properties of disordered quantum matter. At the centre of this field is the metal to insulator transition, the first quantum phase transition to be recognized as such, over seventy years ago. The lectures will start with early models, proceeding on to the description in terms of a scaling approach for noninteracting electrons, followed by effects of electron-electron interactions, and ensuing consequences for the transport, optical, dielectric, magnetic and thermodynamic properties of disordered materials at low temperatures. The effect of topology on localization, both for noninteracting electrons (i.e. single particle), as well as on many-body
localization in interacting systems will be covered, focusing on the quantum Hall regime.
