We are part of the Computational Nonlinear and Quantum Optics group (CNQO) at the University of Strathclyde.
We perform theoretical research in the fields of quantum optics and quantum many-body physics, and we are especially interested in time-dependent coherent and dissipative dynamics of ultracold quantum gases.
Our work has important applications in the development of quantum simulators (systems that could be used, e.g., to model the properties of complex materials such as high-temperature superconductors), in increasing fundamental understanding of quantum many-body dynamics, and towards the realisation of quantum computing.

Together with an experimental team in Innsbruck, we demonstrated the engineering of occupation-dependent tunnelling in an optical lattice engineered by modulating the interaction strength. Our work was published in Physical Review Letters.

Together with the experimental group of David Snoke in Pittsburgh, we generated and investigated a new form of rotation for polaritons in a ring trap our work was published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences

Together with the experimental group of Hanns-Christoph Nägerl in Innsbruck, we explore many-body dynamics of atoms tunnelling over multiple sites in a tilted optical lattice, in a Science report.

In a new publication in Physical Review X, we investigate quench dynamics and how they are affected by variable-range interactions, which can now be realised in chains of trapped ions. We find counterintuitive features in which entanglement grows more slowly for longer range interactions.
