Research interest

My field of research is the electronic structure of crystalline materials, especially of strongly-correlated systems. These systems are modeled by employing an advanced treatment of many-electron effects using the dynamical mean-field theory combined with the density functional theory. My current research interests are
  • Magnetic and multipolar orders in local-moment systems,
  • The magnetic anisotropy and crystal-field effects in rare-earth compounds, especially in hard-magnetic intermetallics,
  • The interplay of magnetism, heavy-fermion phenomenon and orbital physics,
  • The role of local correlation effects in 3d transition metals, in particular, in iron and its alloys.
