  • Summary Statement of Research Interests

    I am generally interested in the theory of open quantum systems and more recently, the study of dynamical phase transitions in quantum systems out of equilibrium. As we seek to improve emerging quantum technologies, a proper understanding of quantum information theory, as well as many-body open quantum systems in particular, is becoming increasingly important. I am also interested in the application of computational methods to the study of many-body quantum physics and the development of algorithms aimed at simulating large-scale dissipative dynamics.
