I am a condensed matter theorist, with a main focus on what I would call consisely "hybrid nanosystems". Quantum effects in nanostructures comprised of different materials can give rise to a whole new spectrum of fascinating physics, such as topological materials, non-Abelian anyons, or may have a potential technological impact.
Quite naturally, complex structures often ask for a numerical approach, going alongside trying to find more simple toy models that capture the physical essence. I do enjoy the numerical aspects of my work, too, and also spend time on developing new algorithms and techniques.
