My field of research is theoretical condensed matter physics. I am especially 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 my research focuses on two-dimensional materials, including graphene and two-dimensional magnetic materials. In this line, I aim to provide theoretical routes to engineer exotic states of matter in twisted van der Waals systems, including twisted graphene multilayers. As specific goals, I aim to unveil potential routes to engineer unconventional superconductors, quantum spin liquids, topological states and fractionalized matter in van der Waals materials. Besides this purely theoretical research line, I often work in collaboration with experimental groups studying quantum materials in general, and two-dimensional materials in particular.
