Works in Progress:

Currently working on the effects of particle-particle interaction on transport properties of low-dimensional systems. In particular, gapless one-dimensional many-body systems belong to the universality class of Luttinger liquids that have sound-like excitations at low energy (near Fermi energy). However, traditional Luttinger liquids lack the physical features that makes a model realistic. We are working on additions to the existing model to account for physical properties that a real system should have, for e.g. thermalization, etc.
