I am a theoretical condensed matter physicist working on predicting and understanding the fascinating properties of quantum materials. I place an emphasis on nonlinear response, non-equilibrium dynamics and the possibility to control quantum materials using external fields such as strain and coherent light. My research interests span from exotic magnetism to unconventional superconductivity to magnetic topological phases. To address these questions, I employ analytical field theory methods and also develop quantum computing algorithms for many-body models. I am currently an Assistant Professor at Iowa State University and Scientist at Ames Laboratory.
