Quantum Transport and Topological Insulators
This optional Master course is given in the Spring semester at the University of Geneva. The goal of this course is to study quantum corrections to electronic transport beyond the standard Drude model. It includes the traditional topics of Boltzmann transport, Anderson localization and the Landauer-Büttiker formalism, and then continues to the modern understanding of the quantum Hall effect, topological insulators and topological superconductors.

Spontaneous Symmetry Breaking
In collaboration with Prof. Jasper van Wezel and Dr. Aron Beekman, we developed pedagogical lecture notes on the physics of Spontaneous Symmetry Breaking.

Density Functional Theory
This brief hands-on practical introduction makes the reader acquainted with density functional theory as implemented with Quantum ESPRESSO. Within a few hours, you’ll be able to calculate yourself the bandstructure of relevant materials, such as monolayer WSe2.
