Theory of electronic correlations and collective phenomena

Materials with special properties are the backbone of 21th century technology. One of the most fascinating properties of crystalline solids is their capability to undergo phase transitions - to substantially change their properties in response to minor perturbations. This behavior, intimately tied to the electron-electron interactions, is notoriously difficult to describe. We develop methods to study interacting electrons and apply them to realistic materials as well as simplified models.
