Working on the Lithium experiment

Research Interests

I am interested in using ultracold atom experiments to learn more about out-of-equilibrium situations and many-body, correlated states. After inquiring the physics of quenches in 2D (Kibble-Zurek mechanism, transverse condensation) and of the complex light-atom interactions in dense clouds, I am now investigating the conduction of fermions through a quantum wire (atomtronics).
