Topological and quantum materials have recently attracted immense interest, owing to their unique properties that exhibit rich physics and show tremendous promise for revolutionizing device applications. The study of these materials raises fundamental questions about the interesting and novel physics at play. In this talk, I shall answer some such foundational questions, including, the origin of quantization of electric polarization , the factors that govern the spin Hall effect  and the mechanism behind the stability of magnetic skyrmions . I shall employ this new understanding to uncover exciting materials that outperform the state-of-the-art and promise transformative applications, including next-generation, ultra-dense memories and bio-inspired, neuromorphic computing.
