The discovery of graphene, a two dimensional electron system, provides a new platform for investigation of quantum many body phenomena. In this talk, I discuss how graphene based systems can be used to investigate exotic and long sought after quantum many body states, including unconventional chiral superconductors, interaction driven topological phases, and fractional topological states of matter.
