My main research interests are in the field of low dimensional systems and nanostructures, whose properties are shaped by the effect of electron interactions. Many of the topics I explore are motivated by the long-term goal of bringing quantum effects to applications such as quantum computing. My recent activities involve the study of self-organisation of magnetic moments in electron conductors leading to helical and topological phases, and entanglement detection in nanostructures.
