Abstract: We employ the novel method of AdS/CFT correspondence to study strongly correlated fermions, their ground states and the phase transitions between them. AdS/CFT maps the quantum many-body problem to a classical gravity problem, making it more tractable. We find a holographic description of Fermi liquids and then proceed to find novel non-Fermi liquid ground states. In the future one can expect AdS/CFT to contribute toward our understanding of real world materials
