He is currently the Group Leader of the Theory and Software Group and a Presidential Research Professor in condensed-matter theory at Northern Illinois University. His major research focus is strongly correlated materials and systems away from equilibrium, in particular, the study thereof with X-rays.
He has written 64 publications that are published in highly-cited journals, such as Physical Review Letters (19), Review of Modern Physics (1) and Science (1). The total number of citations exceeds fifteen hundred.
He has obtained grants from the Department of Energy, the University of Chicago/Argonne National Laboratory, and the Research Corporation totalling more than 2 million dollar.
