Course content

Our work follows a common thread of modelling complex systems consisting of many interacting objects. We use a variety of mathematical and computational techniques, including developing our own numerical software. Our work sits in three broad themes.

Theme 1: Many-body quantum systems and collective behaviour
Theme 2: Quantum simulation and ultracold atoms
Theme 3: Biophysics and the statistical mechanics of life.
