Research Interests

My activity concerns theoretical problems connected to the physics of correlated electron systems in low dimensions. In particular I have been dealing with the physics of high-temperature cuprate and pnictide superconductors, graphene, and more recently conventional superconductors at strong disorder. The main topics of my work can be summarized as:

- Out-of-equlibrium spectroscopies
- Superconducting collective modes
- Multiband physics in pnictides
- Superconductor-Insulator transition in conventional superconductors
- Kosterlitz-Thouless behavior in quasi-2D systems
- Spectroscopic and optical properties of graphene
- Unconventional magnetism due to Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interactions
