Research Interests:

  • Strongly correlated electron systems
  • Spin torques and skyrmions
  • Driven and open quantum systems and magnets
  • ultracod atoms
  • Non-equilibrium and RG
  • Topological insulators
  • Transport in quasi one-dimensional systems
  • Nanosystems: Kondo-dots in non-equilibrium
  • Non-Fermi liquid behavior
  • Quantum Phase Transitions
  • and much more: mesoscopics, weak localization, decoherence by interactions...
