Biography
RESEARCH INTERESTS: *Non-equilibrium transport, detection,
and dissipation of spin currents through quantum wires and dots. My group's theoretical research is directed at advancing our understanding both of the interplay between interaction and disorder effects and of out-of-equilibrium phenomena in condensed matter systems. To achieve this goal, we try to develop new theoretical frameworks and computational methods which can be applied to explain experimental data as well as suggest new directions for condensed matter physics.
