Research Interests

Study of various systems where strong electron-electron correlations lead to fascinating collective phenomena forms the crux of my research. Among other things, such correlations in matter result in co-operative behaviour, leading to the formation of paradigmatic broken symmetry phases like superconductivity, magnetism, charge ordering, etc. These interactions are responsible for captivating phenomena such as driving transitions between different phases, changing a metal to an insulator and vice-versa, forming glassy and quantum spin liquid phases in many disordered or frustrated systems, renormalizing the masses of electrons by thousands of times leading to the so called ‘heavy fermions’, and many, many, more.
