Research Interests

Currently my project is related to Hopf Insulators. I want to understand the physics of this type of topological insulator and explain the properties which come from topological origin by physical behavior. I want to find the material which will represent the properties of Hopf insulators. The Hopf insulator is a non-interacting system. As the next step in my Ph.D. research, I will consider interacting models and try to discover novel properties in condensed matter.
