Research interests
Dr. Romhanyi studies materials in which the strong interactions lead to fascinating emergent quantum phenomena. She seeks to understand and characterize quantum materials by developing microscopic models describing them. Dr. Romhanyi works on experimentally motivated problems, focusing on compounds where the interplay of charge, spin, orbital, and lattice degrees of freedom is vital, leading to exotic physical properties of quantum origins. Exploring these systems is not only exciting but also has potentials in technological applications. Her research interests include frustrated magnetism, spin-orbital physics, multiferroic materials, and topological phases of matter.
