Research Interests

My research interest lies in the understanding of the properties of correlated electron systems and quantum spin systems. One major direction of my work is to search for the quantum spin liquid state in frustrated quantum magnetic systems, understanding the physics of high temperature superconductivity and topological phases as well as their entanglement properties. In addition, I am also very interested in developing new computation tools widely used in studying various strongly correlated systems, including density matrix renormalization group and Tensor network states approaches.
