Research interests

Background in condensed matter theory, with experience mainly in quantum-many body physics, strongly correlated electronic systems, high-temperature superconductors, as cuprates, and frustrated magnetism, in the exploration of collective quantum phenomena and exotic phases, and in the properties of low-dimensional systems.

  Strongly correlated electron systems
  Electrons and phonons
  Frustrated magnetism
  Novel quantum phases

  Hubbard model

  Green's function formalism
  Variational methods (Gutzwiller and Jastrow trial states)
  Operatorial Equations of motion (Composite Operator Method)

  Photoemission and tunneling experiments
  Scattering experiments

Nature of the excitonic insulator and its excitations.
