RESEARCH

I have been studying about tunneling phenomena in unconventional superconductivity, symmetry of Cooper pair, pairing mechanism of exotic superconductivity, topological superconductivity and topological insulator.

First, I would like to continue to study odd-frequency pairing in topological superconductor and correlated systems. I also study Weyl semimetal, monolayer materials, and parafermions.
