Work Area

  • Quantum magnetism

  • Unconventional superconductivity

  • Quasiparticle excitations and interferences

  • Ordering phenomena including higher-order multipole ordering such as orbital order

  • Other low-energy collective excitations such as spin-wave excitations

  • Finite temperature spectral and transport properties of ordered and disordered systems.

Description of Research Interests

We are interested in ordering phenomena and low-energy collective excitations in condensed matter with particular interest in superconductivity and magnetism exhibited by strongly correlated systems. Our current focus is on material systems such as iron-based superconductors and high-Tc cuprates.
