Quantum materials are rapidly emerging as the basis for possible novel computation devices. However, fully understanding the interplay between magnetic and electronic excitations are preventing us from realizing their full potential. In my talk I will show how realizing the microscopic magnetic textures in quantum materials is crucial to the understanding of transport phenomena on the macro scale.

The focus of meeting are open problems at the intersection of mathematics and quantum physics.
Surprising results in mathematics often have deep explanations in quantum physics. Dualities in quantum field theory and string theory can lead to new mathematical conjectures and relations between areas of mathematics that have not been connected before.

Active processes in living systems create a novel class of non-equilibrium material composed of many interacting parts that individually consume energy and collectively generate motion or mechanical stress. In this talk, I will discuss experimental tools and conceptual frameworks we develop to uncover laws governing order, phase transitions and fluctuations in systems in which individual components break time reversal symmetry.

Abstract: The pandemic of Covid-19 has had an unprecedented impact on US society. This talk addresses the inequalities that the pandemic has revealed in our society specifically with respect to its disproportionate impact on African American communities. The impact of the pandemic on race relations within scientific communities has also received renewed attention in the wake of the pandemic.
