My main research interests are focused on the study of Quantum Materials, mainly displaying magnetism and/or superconductivity.

In Matter Physics it has been recently introduced [REF1, REF2] the broad term Quantum Materials to identify materials which display collective quantum phenomena, also called emergent phenomena, emerging from the many-body interaction of different physical entities such as spin, charge, phonon, orbital…

The properties of these materials are uniquely defined by quantum mechanical effects that remain manifest at high temperatures and macroscopic length scales and offer an excellent playground to study fundamental physical phenomena with a high potential for novel technological applications. For example, Quantum Materials can typically display magnetism, superconductivity, superfluidity, topological order, fractional quantum Hall effect, etc.

Research on quantum materials is a multidisciplinary field which brings together scientists working on a variety of problems at the frontiers of physics, materials science, chemistry and engineering.
