Welcome to Pavlo Sukhachov who comes to us as a postdoctoral associate working in the theoretical condensed matter group with Meng Cheng.
His main scientific interests include the theoretical study of various aspects of novel topological and quantum materials. In particular, he has been investigating a wide range of electronic properties in Weyl and Dirac semimetals. He is interested and have expertise in the following manifestations of the unusual nature of topological materials: transport phenomena, electron hydrodynamics, disorder effects, nontrivial collective excitations, quantum oscillations, interaction effects, topologically protected surface states, i.e., the Fermi arcs, the strain-induced pseudo-electromagnetic fields, and superconductivity. In addition, the properties of other quantum materials exhibiting unconventional dispersion relations of their quasiparticles are of interest to him.
