Professor for theoretical condensed matter physics and theoretical quantum physics

Research interests

In recent years complex quantum systems became of great importance in both condensed matter physics and ultracold atomic and molecular gases. The interaction between the particles induces fascinating quantum effects as superconductivity or spin liquids. The focus of our research interest is the understanding of both static and non-equilibrium phenomena in these interacting many body systems.
