Ph. D. (2000), Princeton University
Interests and Activities:
primarily interested in
theoretical condensed matter physics, in particular
disordered and interacting quantum systems, including nanoscale and
mesoscopic systems and strongly correlated systems. The focus of my
recent research is fractional quantum Hall effect and topological
