## Current Interests

Current Interests: Currently my research is primarily in the areas of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics/many body physics and of topological phases of matter. In the former I have worked in recent years on many body localization, Floquet systems and quantum circuits. I am currently very interested in the new opportunities for many body theory opened up by the creation of NISQ devices and the progress they are expected to see in the next decade. In the latter area I have long term interests in the quantum Hall effect and in the theory of spin liquids and most recently worked some amount on the theory of fractons.
