I conduct research in Condensed Matter Theory, with focus on:
  • Correlated Materials
  • Unconventional Superconductors
  • Theoretical Methods for Strongly Correlated Systems
I am the happy recipient of an ERC Consolidator 2016 Grant, which will fund the creation of a new research group in LPEM@ESPCI on the theory of correlated materials with focus on superconductors and thermoelectrics, and its reasearch in the years 2017-2022.

See the relevant section in the menu at the top for more detail.
There is currently one open Post-Doc position in the group.

Conferences organized

With Benoit Fauqué, Massimo Capone and Marco Schirò we organized the second edition of the international conference ParisEdge: "Cutting-Edge Topics in Quantum Materials", which was held in ESPCI, Paris on October 16-19, 2017.


Together with J. Bauer C. Giannetti and D. Inosov we organized the International Conference NGSCES2013, held in Sestri Levante, 1-5 July 2013, the fourth edition of the successful gathering of emergent researchers in the field of strongly correlated electron systems.


Together with Marcelo Rozenberg, Massimo Capone, Agnès Barthélemy, we organized the International Conference "Edge Topics in Correlated Materials" (ParisEdge2010), which was held in LPS-Orsay and Collège de France-Paris on May 17-19th, 2010.
