Young Research Leaders in Topological Materials and Beyond

  • Organized by
  • Jennifer Cano, Ph.D.Affiliate Associate Research Scientist, CCQ, Flatiron Institute
  • Lukas Muechler, Ph.D.Flatiron Research Fellow, CCQ, Flatiron Institute
  • Liang Wu, Ph.D.Assistant Professor, University of Pennsylvania
Date & Time


162 Fifth Avenue, 9th Floor Classroom

Invitation Only

Participation is by invitation only. All participants must register.

The goal of the workshop is to bring together young and untenured independent researchers to establish a collaborative and stimulating environment to discuss novel ideas and directions in the broad field of topological materials. We aim to cover a variety of topics, e.g. higher-order topological insulators, Moire lattices, non-linear Hall effect, and topological superconductivity both from a theoretical as well as experimental perspective.
The workshop follows from a series of “Young Research Leaders” workshops, initiated and partially funded by the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids (MPI-CPfS). The first meeting in 2016 was organized in collaboration with the University of Mainz (within the SPICE program). In 2017, we met jointly together with the Max Planck Institute of Solid-State Physics and the MPI-CPfS, while in 2018 the conference was held at the Weizmann Institute in Israel.
