My research activities are in theoretical condensed matter physics. My main interest is the investigation of strongly correlated quantum mechanical many body systems, particularly their new collective behavior emerging due to competing interactions. Employing the tools of quantum statistical mechanics of many body systems, I am analyzing analytically and numerically phenomena such as superconductivity, quantum phase transitions, magnetism, disordered systems and non-equilibrium dynamics of glassy systems.
