My research interests

I am interested in a range of topics including quantum simulation, strongly correlated systems, open quantum systems out of equilibrium and quantum information. My current research focuses on developing tensor network state based methods to simulate many body quantum systems in driven-dissipative environments. In particular, I am interested in polariton lattices. In these systems, planar semiconductor microcavities are engineered such that the microcavity exciton-polaritons are strongly confined into 1D or 2D lattice geometries. As well as being a versatile platform for quantum simulation these systems offer an insight into topological states and non-equilibrium physics.
