Research interests

My general aim is to combine experimental and theoretical work to develop new methods to deal with complexity, and to make use of them to understand the natural world.

In the short term, my programme of research consists of the study of frustrated magnetic systems and of quantum critical points in correlated electron systems, and their effects and consequences in the properties of materials.


I lecture the course "Advanced Condensed Matter" for the Scottish Doctoral training centre in Condensed matter Physics (CM-DTC).
