Courses

Solid state physics I

This lecture gives an introduction to Solid State Physics, namely to their crystal and electronic structure, their magnetic properties, as well as to their thermal and electric conductance. The level is that of the book by Ashcroft & Mermin. The lecture is for Physics Students in their 3rd year

Lectures on twisted bilayer graphene

Twisted Bilayer Graphene (TBG) is a change of paradigm in condensed matter: with flat topologic bands, it provides a platform for unconventional superconductivity, correlated insulation, Plankian metal phase, etc. This course will provide rigorous yet pedagocical introduction to the topic.
