My research interests

I am interested in a range of topics including phase transitions, universal phenomena, quantum turbulence and topological features in quantum fluids of atoms and light. My academic experience is centered on the numerical modeling of ultracold Bose gases of atoms and exciton-polaritons in microcavities. My current research also involves the investigation of turbulent phenomena and the engineering of neural networks in polariton condensates.
