Research Interests

Transport and correlations in low-dimensional systems

I am interested in the theory of electronic transport in mesoscopic systems. Mesoscopic physics deals with diverse objects whose size spans the range between tens of nanometers to a few microns. These objects consist of millions of atoms, yet their size is so small that quantum interference effects become essential. Quantum effects, disorder, and electron-electron interaction give rise to a wealth of very interesting phenomena which may well form a basis for future nanoelectronic devices.
