Senthil Todadri Condensed matter theory

Senthil Todadri works towards understanding the phenomena that could and do arise in materials whose properties do not seem to fit in simply with conventional theories of the physics of solids, including materials that display high-temperature superconductivity. More specifically, Dr. Todadri has worked on the theory of electron localization due to impurities in various circumstances, and the properties of solids near zero temperature phase transitions driven by quantum fluctuations.
