Condensed Matter Physics intents to describe and predict new emergent phenomena in complex quantum materials. These are often of reduced dimensionality which enhances quantum and correlation effects. In this context, especially two-dimensional van der Waals materials have attracted much attention due to their easy experimental tunability. I have been working on these Dirac and related Moiré systems from the very beginning. My research topics include unconventional superconductors, magnetic and topological order, nanophotonics with strong light-matter interaction and plasmonics.
