Research Interests and achievement
Updated on September 3, 2018
My main research interests are generally in theoretical condensed matter physics. My recent research has been focusing  on topological properties of materials. In particular, I have been working on the interplay of topology and correlation effects in electronic systems. This includes the formation of topological Kondo insulators and semimetals due the effect of Kondo screening.  
In addition, the effect of  topology due to geometry on superconductivity is also one of my foci. We have recently shown that because of the temperature-dependent feature of Kondo effects, it is possible for a Kondo insulator to go through a finite-temperature  fermionic critical point.  In addition,  we have recently demonstrated that it is possible for topological superconductivity to occur through inter-surface pairing in thin topological insulators. These achievements represent typical subjects of my research foci.
