The Correlated Quantum Materials (CQM) group focuses on theoretically studying emerging quantum phenomena in solid-state systems. In particular, we are highly interested in materials where electronic correlations and topology yield exotic physics such as symmetry broken states, topological excitations and ultimately emerging fractionalized particles. A central part of our research focuses on van der Waals materials, including graphene, two-dimensional superconductors, magnets and multiferroics. In our group, we aim to provide theoretical routes to engineer exotic states of matter in twisted van der Waals systems, including graphene, 2D superconductors, ferromagnets and multiferroics. As specific goals, we aim to unveil potential routes to engineer unconventional superconductors, quantum spin liquids, topological states and fractionalized matter in van der Waals materials. We are developing new methodologies to treat quantum many-body fractional matter using both neural-network, tensor-network and quantum-circuit algorithms. Besides our theoretical research lines, we often work in collaboration with experimental groups studying quantum materials in general, and van der Waals materials in particular.
