Research Statement:
I am broadly interested in theoretical condensed matter physics, in particular, quantum mechanical aspects of condensed matter systems in the areas of nanoscale physics and strongly correlated systems, as seen in the transport and entanglement of electrons. As electronic devices become smaller and smaller, quantum effects have a greater influence on their electronic properties. At the same time, we are seeking to exploit quantum effects to enable quantum computation and quantum communication in next-generation electronics, as these quantum effects are much more powerful than classical alternatives. The target systems so far include quantum nanowires, the quantum Hall effect, unconventional superconductors, carbon-related systems such as carbon nanotube and graphene, and more recently, topological insulators and topological superconductors. At Illinois, I am planning to work further on topological phenomena in condensed matter physics, with more emphasis on strong electron correlations, in particular, a search for new topological superconductors in unconventional superconducting systems.
