RESEARCH
Since before the discovery of topological insulators, I have been interested in topological phases, in particular topological aspects of superconductors. Also, recently I have studied topological crystalline insulators and superconductors in order to reveal the relation between symmetry and topology.
In the previous topological project, I had known various aspects of topological quantum phenomena, through many discussions and collaborations. In this new topological project, by taking into account electron correlation effects as well, I would like to develop theories of topological materials, predict new topological phenomena, and collaborate with experimentalists.
