Matthew P.A. Fisher
mpaf@ucsb.edu

Matthew Fisher’s recent research interests lie at the boundary between many-body condensed matter theory and quantum information theory, focussing on collective quantum dynamical behavior far out-of-equilibrium. He is especially interested in “monitored” quantum systems, wherein the competition between measurements and unitary gates can drive novel non-equilibrium dynamics in multi-qubit systems.

Leo Radzihovsky
radzihov@colorado.edu

Radzihovsky’s theoretical research interests span a broad spectrum of classical and quantum condensed matter. These range from entropy-dominated liquid crystals, colloids, membranes, rubber and other “soft” matter to quantum matter, such as superconductors, magnets, degenerate atomic gases, quantum Hall and other topological states of matter. He aims to understand the nature of phases and phase transitions exhibited by these systems, with the unifying theme of collective universal behavior that emerges at long scales and low energies, driven by a combination of strong interactions, fluctuations, and/or local heterogeneity.

Victor Albert
vva@umd.edu

I am a physicist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology and an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics and the Institute for Advanced Computer Studies. I am interested in the broad area of quantum science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, with topics ranging from superconducting circuits to molecular physics. I am the zookeeper of the error-correction zoo, an online repository of classical and quantum error-correcting codes. I received my Ph.D. from Yale in 2017 and was a postdoc at Caltech prior to joining QuICS.

Immanuel Bloch
immanuel.bloch@mpq.mpg.de

My research focuses on quantum simulations using ultracold atoms and molecules using novel tool such as quantum gas microscopy that allow for a microscopic detection of the atoms in a spin and desnity resolved wat. With such quantum simulators our group explores both ground state and non-equilbirium quantum phenomena especially in strongly interacting systems.
