Research Interests

I’m a computational materials theorist working on a broad range of topics in the field of materials with non-trivial topology: topological insulators, topological semimetals, and topological superconductors. My studies to date were mostly concentrated on non-interacting systems, well-described with density functional theory (DFT). However, at the present moment, I plan to move my research to the field of interacting topological materials. The main topics of the planned research are the development of numerical methods, aimed to simulate real materials with existing tensor network numerical approaches, and use these methods to find real materials that host topological order in the form of either Abelian or non-Abelian anyons or topological phases of interacting bosons.
