Research Areas

My research interest
I study theoretical condensed-matter / atomic-molecular-optical physics, with particular interest in superconductivity and superfluidity in novel quantum systems. Current research involves 1) spin-orbit coupled Bose-Einstein condensates and degenerate Fermi gases, 2) topological superconductors with Majorana fermions, 3) transport in superconducting heterostructures, 4) unconventional pairing in Fermi superfluids, 5) quantum emulation with optical lattices, and 6) continuous matrix product state algorithm.
