My two main interests are the physics of correlated electrons with emphasis on new states of matter that exhibit non-trivial topology, and the physics of spin transport in semiconductors and insulators. I have worked on a variety of topics including spintronics and spin-orbit coupling, spin manipulation in semiconductors, (quantum) spin Hall effect, low dimensional physics, integrable spin chains, quantum hall and high-temperature superconductivity. I also have a strong interest in how ideas of condensed matter physics can be used in high-energy and vice versa with emphasis on twistors, large-N QCD as an integrable theory and the instanton vacuum.
