Lab Overview

My lab in Kangwon National University is interested in exploring material properties of correlated electron systems and searching for emergent phases originating from the cooperation between spin-orbit coupling (SOC) and electron correlations. Especially I have been focusing on symmetry-protected topological insulator/semimetal phases, frustrated magnetisms, and coupling between lattice-charge-spin-lattice degrees of freedom in transition metal compounds and heterostructures. Density functional theory and dynamical mean-field theory methods are employed to simulate material properties and to construct low-energy effective model for any given system, distilling the essence of physics from ostensibly complex materials. More details can be found in my webpage: https://sites.google.com/view/heungsikim/home
