Department of Physics: Condensed Matter Theory Group
Research is concerned with high Tc superconductivity, magnetism, quantum sticking, density functional theory, the properties of fullerenes and nanotubes and Berry-phase effects in condensed matter systems.
Research interests include studies of correlated electron systems and the electronic properties of Graphene.

Current research involves the application of high performance computational tools to study the effects of strong interactions in condensed matter systems.
Consider an experiment where one draws liquid through a straw by applying a pressure difference between its ends. This is equivalent to opening up a faucet, and the flow across the straw will depend on its size as well as the nature of the atoms making up the fluid inside it. Next, decrease the temperature to near absolute zero, ...
Funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation, the UVM summer program on complex materials brings talented undergraduates from universities across the country to Burlington to work on research projects with the UVM faculty in the materials science program. UVM has the only NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates ...
An international team of researchers including Prof. Adrian Del Maestro at the University of Vermont may have uncovered a way to improve the efficiency of proposed future electronics built from the edges of a new class of exotic materials. In conventional electronic circuitry, electrons move through crystalline wires but their ...
