Research Interests

Inti Sodemann is interested in a broad range of topics in condensed matter physics, but particularly in the problems of interacting fermions in two-spatial dimensions. Quantum Hall phenomena are among those he finds exciting because of their colorful experimental manifestations and the robust theoretical pictures that often substantiate them. Inti's also interested in exploring the incarnations of quantum Hall physics in new regimes (in addition to that of strong magnetic fields), and in studying its realization in materials like graphene and topological insulators.

Biographical Sketch

Inti is a condensed matter theorist currently working on the theory of fractional quantum Hall phases, graphene, Berry phase dependent transport phenomena, quantum Hall bilayers and spin superfluidity. He earned his Ph.D. at the University of Texas at Austin, working with Prof. Allan MacDonald. Prior to that, Inti completed his M.Sc. at the University of South Carolina with Prof. Yaroslaw B. Bazaliy. He did his undergraduate studies at the National University of Colombia in Bogota, working with Prof. Alonso Botero. Inti is originally from Monteria, Colombia.
