Once you know, it will be hard to remember what it was like not to know. This is known as the Curse of Knowledge. But there is a solution: Share what you know once you know!

I am Benjamin and on this blog I am sharing what I learn about physics and beyond, both from my own research and literature. Research has led me to explore

  • random resistor networks & percolation
  • the domain wall conductivity in ferroelectrics
  • the phase diagram of chiral magnets within mean-field theory
  • the chaotic behavior of spin-torque oscillators
  • a high-energy approximation to the magnon band structure of a Skyrmion crystal lattice

An overview of my research articles you’ll find at Google scholar (more to come in the near future).
