Research interests

My curiosity covers many areas in physics and other sciences but my focus is in Condensed Matter Physics, the modeling and simulation of low-dimensional materials. I started with the study of transport properties of graphene and the consequences of laser illumination. Using Floquet theory I stumbled on the emergence of laser-induced bandgaps and topological states. Naturally, I immersed myself in the study of topological properties of condensed matter systems and of Floquet Topological Insulators. Now, at the Theoretical Physics group, I am studying topological properties together with superconducting mesoscopic systems to discover new physics, where the special case of topological superconductors that can host Majorana fermions is an exciting example.
