Adolfo G. Grushin (@aggrushin)

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

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

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.
