My main scientific interests include the theoretical study of various aspects of novel topological and quantum materials. In particular, I have been investigating a wide range of electronic properties in Weyl and Dirac semimetals. I am 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 me.

I like working and reading about the history of science.
