My Research Interests

The primary focus of my research is on quantum systems out of equilibrium, including effects of the environment on their behavior. An essential part of this work involves the adequate description of such systems in terms of statistical fluctuations occurring in particle and heat currents. Another interesting aspect is the experimental detection of fluctuations and, more generally, the realization of non-equilibrium models on various physical platforms. In the spirit of quantum simulations I investigate possible implementations based on trapped ions, ultra cold atoms and nitrogen-vacancy centers in diamond.
