Professor and Canada Research Chair in Condensed Matter Physics & Statistical Mechanics

My main current interests are in the area of random disordered systems and problems pertaining to frustrated classical and quantum magnetic systems. I often collaborate with experimentalists, either trying to understand their results or to think of new experiments to test theoretical ideas.
