Joseph Maciejko Condensed matter physicist

Joseph Maciejko is interested in a variety of problems in theoretical condensed matter physics. His main focus is the emergence of novel phenomena in many-particle systems subject to the laws of quantum mechanics. Current areas of research include topological phases of matter, strongly correlated electrons, quantum transport in low-dimensional systems, and connections between condensed matter physics and high-energy physics.
