I'm a condensed matter theorist working as an Assistant Professor at Université de Montréal, in Québec, Canada. I'm interested in the unsual states of matter that emerge (usually) at low temperature, where quantum mechanics dictates the rules.
I hold a Canada Research Chair in Quantum Phase Transitions.
I'm a member of the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques (CRM), a major hub for the mathematical sciences (including mathematical physics), located on the Université de Montréal campus.
