Research interests

I am a researcher in theoretical physics where my main research interests lie in the detection, classification, engineering, and stabilization of exotic far-from-equilibrium dynamics in various quantum many-body systems such as lattice gauge theories and long-range quantum spin models. Phenomenologically, I am interested in quantum spin liquids, quenched-disorder many-body localization, disorder-free localization, quantum many-body scars, dynamical phase transitions and criticality, prethermalization, and (absence of) thermalization dynamics, to name a few topics. The pursuit of possible dynamical quantum universality classes is an overarching theme of a lot of my work. In my research, I frequently use various analytic and numerical techniques including exact diagonalization, Krylov subspace time-evolution methods, matrix product states, Schwinger boson mean-field theory, (time-dependent, degenerate) perturbation theory, Magnus expansion, and quantum-field-theoretic methods such as the Keldysh formalism.
