Associate professor doing research in condensed matter physics and aspects of complex systems and machine learning.


I work on strongly correlated systems, such as the cuprate high-temperature superconductors, iron-based superconductors and graphene. I have worked on computational methods for quantum many particle systems such as dynamical mean field theory and more recently on a model for finite momentum superconductivity.  On a separate track I have also done some work on the Minority Game, which is a agent based model related to market dynamics. Presently I work on applying machine learning techniques to physics and quantum computing. Specifically, I have used deep reinforcement learning for quantum error correction in the toric code.


Currently, I am teaching Physics for Electrical engineering students and the newly developed course “Introduction to deep learning and reinforcement learning” .
