My ResearcherID page (ISI stats)
I conduct research in Condensed Matter Theory, with focus on:
  • Correlated Materials
  • Unconventional Superconductors
  • Theoretical Methods for Strongly Correlated Systems

After a three-year research appointment in the LPS in Orsay, as PI of the ANR project MottSelSupra, I am now associate researcher at ESPCI-ParisTech in Paris and, starting November 2013, Theory Scientist at the ESRF in Grenoble.

A few recent highlights


Here are the notes of the lectures held with M. Capone at the  XIX Training Course in the Physics of Strongly Correlated Systems in the International Institute for Advanced Scientific Studies (IIASS) ,Vietri sul Mare (Salerno), Italy, from 5th to 16th  October, 2015. More Details.

The February 2013 issue of the Journal Club for Condensed Matter Physics was dedicated by A. Fujimori to part of our work.

A highlight from LPS-Orsay webpage: "Oxides are made of atoms, after all!" (version française: "Les Oxydes sont faits d'atomes, après tout!")

Together with J. Bauer C. Giannetti and D. Inosov we organized the International Conference NGSCES2013, held in Sestri Levante, 1-5 July 2013, the fourth edition of the successful gathering of emergent researchers in the field of strongly correlated electron systems.


Together with Marcelo Rozenberg, Massimo Capone, Agnès Barthélemy, we organized the International Conference "Edge Topics in Correlated Materials" (ParisEdge2010), which was held in LPS-Orsay and Collège de France-Paris on May 17-19th, 2010.
