  • Many-Body physics from first principles: correlation effects in semiconductors and nanostructures.
  • Nonequilibrum physics and ultrafast phenomena: carrier dynamics, exciton dynamics, coherent dynamics, magnetization dynamics, quantum kinetics, transient spectroscopy.
  • Emergent physics in condensed matter. Berry-Phase, Kerr effect and Anomalous Hall effects in 3D materials; Kerr effect and valley physics in 2D materials; Gauge invariance out of equilibrium, Aharonov Bohm effect and excitonic insulator phase in 1D carbon nanotubes.
  • Development and exploitation of advanced first principles computational methods beyond density functional theory, mostly many-body perturbation theory, to study electronic and optical spectroscopies. Scientific software development and high-performance computing.
