I am a condensed matter theorist, working in the field of strongly correlated systems. My main interests are related to low-temperature properties of itinerant electrons and frustrated magnetic systems. By using numerical methods, like classical and quantum Monte Carlo, exact diagonalization, density-matrix renormalization group, and analytic approaches (slave particles, Gutzwiller approximation, and spin waves), I focused my attention on Hubbard-like models and their generalizations.
