Our focus is on Topological Quantum Matter and driven systems. Our test ground are mostly two-dimensional materials and topological insulators.

Following my appointment at the University of Chile in 2016, the present team is a continuation of Nanocarbon@FaMAF, our earlier workgroup at the University of Córdoba (FAMAF-UNC, Argentina), which was active between 2009 and 2015.
