Main areas of research

  • Relativistic fermionic systems: simulation of 4-Fermi theories (Thirring- and Gross-Neveu model) on three-dimensional lattices. Relevant for strongly interacting quantum systems with phase transitions. Applications to materials with Dirac point(s) in the electronic Dispersion relation

  • Supersymmetric gauge theories: Phase transitions and particle masses of theories in 4 and 2 dimensions. Relevant for theories beyond the Standard Model of particle physics and for the Gregory-Laflamme instability of Black Strings and Black Holes.

  • Renormalization group for supersymmetric (susy) field theories: the resurgence of supersymmetry in non-susy field theories at low energies and quantum corrections of the metric in field space. Relevant for the universal behaviour of susy theories.
