LABORATOIRE DE PHYSIQUE THEORIQUE DE LA MATIERE CONDENSEE


I am a theoretical physicist working in the fields of condensed matter and quantum physics. I hold a CNRS position since 2012. I am located at Laboratoire de Physique Théorique de la Matière Condensée (LPTMC, Sorbonne Université, Paris). Between 2004 and 2012, I was an assistant-professor (maître de conférences) at Université Paris-Sud working in the theory group of the Laboratoire de Physique des Solides (LPS, Université Paris-Sud, Orsay). I am still a regular visitor there.

Research

 

My field of research is condensed matter theory. More specific interests: Cold atomic gases. Spin waves. Graphene and more generally Dirac fermions in condensed matter systems. Quantum Hall effect. Berry (geometrical) phases and band theory. Topological insulators. Orbital magnetism. Semiclassical techniques. Quasicrystals. Hofstadter butterfly. Frustrated quantum magnetism and anyons.

 

Publications available on the arXiv web site.

PhD thesis (doctorat 2003). 

Habilitation (HDR 2013).

 

Popular science articles on graphene (in French): Images de la physique 2007, Pour la Science 2008, Bulletin de la Société Française de Physique 2011.

 

A book edited on Dirac matter (séminaire Poincaré june 2014)

 

A colloquium on topological phases of matter (may 2017)

 


Teaching

 

From 2004 to 2012, I was an assistant-professor (maître de conférences) at Université Paris-Sud teaching wave physics, quantum mechanics, statistical physics, solid state physics, broken symmetries and statistical field theory, condensed matter field theory, physics for 1st year medical studies, etc.

 

From 2013 to 2018, I have been teaching a course, together with Giuliano Orso, on ``Symmetries and quantum field theory" at the Master 2 Concepts Fondamentaux de la Physique (ICFP) in the ``quantum physics'' speciality.

Lecture notes, problem sheets (from previous exams) and solutions are available here. Exercise sheets and solutions are available here .
