Understanding the inner workings of nature and drawing connections between seemingly disparate phenomena is a main driving passion in my research.


Research focus: Quantum simulation, quantum computing, gauge theories, quantum many-body physics, quantum many-body dynamics, far-from-equilibrium quantum criticality, cold atoms, thermalization, non-ergodic dynamics, dynamical phase transitions.

My group’s research focuses on the quantum simulation of gauge theories and far-from-equilibrium quantum many-body dynamics. Using analytic and numerical tools, we develop methods to stabilize gauge theories on various quantum-simulation platforms, ranging from cold atoms to superconducting qubits. The goal is to propose the next generation of experimentally feasible reliable large-scale quantum simulators of gauge theories in higher spatial dimensions and with non-Abelian gauge groups. The purpose of this endeavour is to then utilize these quantum simulators with experimental colleagues in order to probe the rich physics of far-from-equilibrium gauge-theory dynamics that may not be accessible using classical methods. Conversely, the my group also employs analytic and numerical techniques to discover, enhance, and classify new exotic far-from-equilibrium gauge-theory dynamics that can be observed in current and near-term state-of-the-art quantum simulation platforms. A unifying theme is to try and understand how the various ingredients of gauge theories conspire to bring about thermalization or avoid it altogether, in the spirit of understanding the nature of equilibration in isolated quantum many-body models.
