Research interests

My research is in far-from-equilibrium quantum many-body physics, where I investigate the effects of mechanisms such as quenching and decoherence on the short- and long-time dynamical properties of various quantum many-body systems ranging from neutral atoms in an optical cavity (strong light-matter interactions) to strongly correlated electron systems (such as quantum spin liquids). Of particular interest are dynamical phase transitions and out-of-equilibrium criticality in such systems, and what they can infer about possible out-of-equilibrium quantum universality classes.
