The theme of this talk is the interplay between entanglement and renormalization in quantum matter. The goal is to formulate a general conceptual and computational framework for understanding entanglement in quantum matter. I will begin by describing recent progress in computing entanglement properties of interesting ground states by focusing on the low energy physics. Then I will discuss how such studies lead us to a class of quantum states that incorporate the interplay between entanglement and renormalization. The resulting physical picture interprets entanglement geometrically and gives us new conceptual and computational tools.
