Double perovskites, a class of oxide materials with 3d and 5d transition metal ions, can realize a wide variety of interesting phases. Here we focus on our recent theoretical work suggesting the appearance of Chern insulators, and possible emergent nematic phases at Chern transitions in such systems. We will also discuss Mott insulating double perovskites with iridium moments which appear to host unusual magnetic interactions on the 3-dimensional fcc lattice, and present comparisons with experimental data.
