Introduction

Spin transport in topological materials, Quantum field theory, Cosmology

Research Interests

My current research is all about Weyl semimetals. In particular I'm looking at the peculiarities of the topologically protected surface states in both Type I and Type II Weyl semimetals and what role they play in spin transport. I'm also interested in applying insights from high energy physics to condensed matter and vice versa.​​
