Many physical systems are out of equilibrium, and all materials have some level of inherent disorder. Out of equilibrium states, or the interplay between disorder and other degrees of freedom can lead to behaviour which is qualitatively distinct from either the clean or equilibrium situation. My research focuses on the theory of (mainly) electronic and magnetic condensed matter systems which are out of equilibrium or in which disorder plays an important role. Areas that I work on currently or worked on previously are listed below.

Layered metals

Two dimensional electron systems

Systems with glassy and slow dynamics

Diluted Magnetic Semiconductors

Strongly magnetized astrophysical plasmas


SFU Condensed Matter seminars
