My research group’s recent works focus on the role of quantum entanglement in quantum many-body physics and quantum gravity. We helped relating holographic duality with tensor network states, a geometrical representation of quantum many-body states. We have also worked on topological states of matter. Our work pointed out the relation between topological insulators in three spatial dimensions and axion electrodynamics.
