Adolfo G. Grushin (@aggrushin)

I am currently jointly affiliated with the Néel Institute in Grenoble where I hold a permanent CRCN research position. You can find a summary of my interests here. They focus on the understanding topological phases of matter, with and without strong electron-electron correlations whether they are metallic or insulating.

You can find an updated list of publications on arXiv or Google scholar.

Scientific trajectory

2017 – present Chargé de Recherche deuxième classe and Marie Curie Fellow at the Institute Néel, CNRS (Grenoble) and Marie Curie Fellow (until Nov-2018).
2015 – 2017 Joint Marie Curie Fellow at the Physics department at the University of California, Berkeley and the Physics Department at Oxford University. I worked under the supervision of Joel Moore and Steve Simon.

Miguel Ángel Sánchez Martínez (PhD candidate, @Migueltweetit)

I have a background in two seemingly disconnected aspects of physics: quantum field theory and transport phenomena at the nanoscale; these two sets of knowledge find its perfect union in the study of topological phases of matter. In particular, I am focused in exploring new connections between topological phases, its experimental realizations and high-energy physics methods, which open a new horizon to establish a paradigm for anomalies and non-linear phenomena in topological matter.


Quentin Marsal (Master Student)

Quentin is interested in the emergence of topology in amorphous matter. He is working on his master thesis affiliated with the École normale supérieure in Lyon.
