Research Activities/SpecialtiesMy current research interests aim at understanding theoretical aspects of condensed matter systems, and their possible connections to experiments.
Two recent research focuses are:
1. Topological phases of matter, including symmetry protected topological order, intrinsic topological order, topological spin liquid, and fractionalization of quantum numbers in quantum many-body systems. This part of research mainly relies on the tool of quantum field theory and conformal field theory.
2. Frustrated magnetism and exotic phenomena, such as layered triangular Ising-spin system, layered quantum Heisenberg-spin system, spin liquid and spin ice material. For this part of research, besides performing analytical analysis and numerical simulations, collaborating with neutron scattering experimentalists are also needed. I really enjoy the communication with experimental colleagues.
Outside of condensed matter physics, I also have long-standing interests in fundamental aspects of quantum field theory and their application to statistical mechanics and quantum information science.
