Research Interests

Transferring from Lattice QCD, I continue to study many-body physics in strongly correlated systems in the Condensed matter theory group at UZH. My current project is aimed at understanding of the pairing mechanism in tBLG using quantum simulation techniques (AFQMC, VQMC). As an accompanying goal, I am developing a fast Python-frontend flexible and easy-tunable package for AFQMC and VQMC in any Hubbard model [the first release soon in my Github]. I am also interested in the various Machine Learning applications to many-body physics such as the NQS method applied to fermionic systems.
