Research Interests

My main area of research is the theory of condensed matter. I am especially interested in non-equilibrium properties and transport in critical, interacting and disordered many-body systems. Materials, which develop novel electronic, magnetic, mechanical or optical properties when exposed to a changing environment, are of particular interest. The dynamics of phase transitions, hydrodynamic transport and turbulence, interacting disordered systems in non-equilibrium, relaxation properties close to criticality or competing phases and transport in systems with collective phenomena.
