Research Interests: Condensed Matter Physics Theory

Yi Li joined the Johns Hopkins Physics and Astronomy Department as an Assistant Professor in 2016. She obtained her PhD in Physics from the University of California, San Diego in 2013, and was a PCTS Postdoctoral Fellow at Princeton University during 2013-2016.

As a condensed matter theorist, Yi Li is interested in exploring exotic quantum phases of matter and their organizing principles, particularly novel topological insulators and topological superconductivity in condensed matter and ultra-cold atom systems, itinerant ferromagnetism, as well as non-perturbative analytic and quantum Monte Carlo approaches to strongly correlated quantum systems.
