We are the Theory group of LPS!

If you are interested in doing an internship with us, or want to visit and discuss, please contact any of our members.

We are a very collaborative group which covers a wide range of topics from material sciences (functional materials, topological and relativistic matter, magnetism and superconductivity...) and quantum systems (in low dimensions, under magnetic fields, in and out-of equilibrium...) to soft and bio- matter (colloids, liquid crystals...).
