Introduction to Research
My research describes the connection between physical properties of modern quantum materials and the nature of quantum entanglement in the many-particle wavefunction. I have worked extensively on the description of the diverse varieties of entangled states of quantum matter. These include states with topological order, with and without an energy gap to excitations, and critical states without quasiparticle excitations. Many of my theories have been linked to experiments, especially to the rich phase diagrams of the high temperature superconductors.
