Theoretical physics of nuclei, particles and fields
Research areas include physics of flavor and CP violation, particle phenomenology at high energy colliders, neutrino physics, astroparticle physics and cosmology, machine learning in high energy physics, as well as lattice QCD methods, with primary focus of research being on physics beyond the standard model.
Theory of condensed matter and statistical physics
The research interests of this group include quantum materials (strongly correlated systems and topologically-nontrivial materials), magnetism and superconductivity, frustrated systems and quantum spin liquids, nanophysics and quantum devices, transport phenomena, statistical properties of networks, and non-equilibrium phenomena. We develop new numerical techniques for large-scale calculations.
Biophysics of polymers, membranes, gels, colloids and cells
The Biophysics group researches a broad range of new problems and challenges at the level of molecules, viruses, cells, tissues, and organisms, the biophysical topics being complemented by selected problems in soft matter physics.
