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