My scientific interests lie at the broad interface between condensed matter physics, AMO and quantum optics, with an emphasis on potential implementations of quantum information processing in realistic physical systems. The basic motivation for this work is two-fold: First, to develop novel quantum devices (quantum computers, simulators, sensors etc.) which hold promise of revolutionary technological capabilities, and second, to advance the fundamental theoretical tools for an improved understanding and a simple, yet realistic description of these kind of systems.
