My name is Alexandros Metavitsiadis and I am currently working as a Postdoctoral researcher in AG-FKT
at the Institute of Theoretical Physics of the Technical University of Braunschweig.

Research Interests
My research interests span in the areas of low dimensional strongly correlated systems, frustrated magnetism,
critical phenomena, entanglement, and spin transport.

Among the numerical and analytical techniques that I have been using are: Numerical Diagonalization (Exact, Lanczos),
Quantum Typicality, Abelian and non-Abelian Bosonization, and the Renormalization Group.
