Research Field

My research interests focus on the investigation of electronic, magnetic, magnetoelectric, ferroelectric, and Hall transport properties of quantum materials. I am curious to search for hidden entangled order in real materials, leading to diverse quantum phenomena that range from various cross-couplings (such as magnetoelectric effect, piezomagnetic effect, etc.) of strongly correlated systems to the geometric properties of Bloch bands, such as Berry curvature dipole, intriguing momentum space spin texture, which are at the heart of spintronics. Another, complementary area of my current research is the various Berry curvature-related phenomena, including anomalous, spin, and orbital Hall effects, with a special emphasis on orbital magnetization and its possible application in the emerging field of orbitronics. I use both ab-initio first-principles techniques as well as model Hamiltonian-based analytical and numerical approaches for my research. The outcome of my research would be of interest to the people working in the field of strong correlation, ferroelectrics, magnetoelectrics, orbironics, spintronics, topological effects, magnetic skyrmions, and strong spin-orbit coupled systems.
