Many body localization allows quantum systems to evade thermalization owing to the emergence of extensive number of local conserved quantities. Many-body localized (MBL) systems exhibit universal dynamics, qualitatively distinct from dynamics in ergodic systems. Despite being subject of intense theoretical and experimental studies, many aspects of MBL remain to be understood. In this talk, after reviewing the basic properties of MBL phase, I will focus on recent progress on the issue of existence of the many-body mobility edges and so-called many-body localization proximity effect. I will conclude with an overview of open questions and promising methods that may enable a further progress in understanding of MBL.
