Research Topics and Interests

My research is aimed at the theoretical study of correlated electron systems. I am currently under a joint project between the Laboratoire des Solides Irradiés and the Centre de Physique Théorique. The aim is to make connections between various methods, including Density-Functional Theory, Many-Body Perturbation Theory, and Dynamical Mean-Field Theory.
More specifically, I am currently working on:

  • Analytical developments for a 2-site model to better describe both single-particle and neutral excitations in spectroscopies.
  • DFT and DMFT algorithms for the description of charge disproportionation in strongly doped cobaltates.
