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


I work on strongly correlated systems, such as the cuprate high-temperature superconductors, iron-based superconductors, as well as 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, and I’m currently looking at aspects of the optimization problem inherent to Deep Learning.


Currently, I am teaching solid state physics.


I am the director of the master program in Complex Adaptive Systems at Chalmers and Gothenburg University.
