Our Research

Our research aims to predict and explain the properties of condensed matter, ranging from structural and dynamical properties of the atomic lattice, to topological and interaction phenomena of the electrons. To this end we utilize and develop advanced mathematical frameworks and state-of-the-art numerical approaches including quantum field theory descriptions, neural network and machine learning concepts, ab initio calculations, and their combinations.

Our main research directions

Layered Materials (1)         Correlated Systems (2)           2skyrmions

Layered Materials        Correlated Systems       Spintronics
