Postdoc

I work in the field of theoretical condensed matter physics and quantum optics. My research interests focus on non-equilibrium dynamics of quantum many body systems. I am broadly working on open quantum many-body systems, cavity QED with strongly correlated electrons with special interest in light-induced superconductivity and imbalance dynamics of many-body localized systems recently realized in

I am interested in various aspects of strongly correlated electron systems, particularly at the interface of superconductivity and topology. I enjoy working closely with experiments, and I like thinking about simple-minded models to illuminate the puzzles of quantum materials. I’m currently thinking about the role of local interactions like Kondo and Hunds in the pairing

His research interests are in theoretical (computational) condensed matter and materials physics. The topics of interest include topological materials, nano materials with novel electronic structures (e.g., graphene, transition-metal dichalcogenides), low-dimensional (magnetic) systems, spin-orbit coupling effects, Berry-curvature effects, and correlated materials (e.g., Mott transition, correlated topological systems).


Fabian Kugler

Postdoc

Fabian Kugler is a Feodor Lynen fellow of the Humboldt foundation. His research interests include strongly correlated electron systems, multi-orbital phenomena, and method development with renormalization-group or real-frequency techniques. His publications can be found on ORCID and arXiv.


Abhishek Kumar

Postdoc

My research interests include the study of the interplay between electron-electron interaction and spin-orbit coupling in different two-dimensional systems such as semiconductor heterostructures, graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides. Other than this, I am also interested in studying dynamical and normal state transport properties of low-density metallic systems near the polar phase transition.


Umesh Kumar

Postdoc

I am interested in studying strongly correlated electrons. My focus primarily lies in using low-dimensional spin chain systems and Hubbard models to study quantum spin liquids and superconductivity. I develop models for spectroscopic techniques such as resonant inelastic x-ray scattering used for probing materials and investigate how materials can be controlled using light within the


Junhyun Lee

Postdoc

My main research interest is centered on exotic quantum phases of matter and the phase transition between them, where the transitions of interest include conventional, deconfined, topological, and dynamical phase transitions. I use both analytical model study including field theoretical calculations and various numerical methods, most prominently the density matrix renormalization group calculation.


Tsung Han Lee

Postdoc

My research interests lie in the field of strongly correlated systems. Recently, I am focusing on extending the slave-boson mean-field theory and Gutzwiller approximation to calculate the two-particle quantities for correlated multiorbital systems and developing a systematic framework to improve the accuracy of these approaches to the two-particle level.

I am a computational/theoretical condensed matter physicist and a postdoc at Rutgers CMT group, working under the supervision of Profs. David Vanderbilt, Karin Rabe, and Kristjan Haule. Previously, I was a Yale-IBM postdoc in the Department of Applied Physics at Yale University. My research is mostly based on the first principles approaches using high-performance computations.


Yubo Qi

Postdoc

My research involves utilizing computational techniques to understand the underlying mechanisms in electronic materials (such as charge-ordering-induced ferroelectrics, HfO2 based ferroelectrics in thin films, low-dimensional ferroelectric, perovskite ferroelectrics), and subsequently propose strategies to improve their functionalities. I am particularly interested in exploring novel materials for applications in electronic devices and investigating transitions between different functional
