Our research is geared towards leveraging the potentials of synthetic quantum systems with the aim of developing novel quantum technologies such as quantum simulation, quantum computation, and quantum metrology.
We perform theoretical studies based on analytical and numerical methods, as well as develop proposals for realizing and characterizing phase diagrams and non-equilibrium dynamics of quantum many-body systems.
These proposals draw on the astonishing abilities of quantum devices, e.g., based on ultracold quantum gases, trapped ions, or superconducting qubits, which are now reaching a level of precision and control that has been unimaginable just a few decades ago.

Our group regularly has openings for motivated Postdocs as well as PhD, Master, and Bachelor students. If you are interested, please contact us.
Project topics include entanglement in quantum many-body systems, quantum simulation of lattice gauge theories and other many-body phenomena, as well as quantum annealing and quantum computation. For more information, see research.
We are associated partner of the recently approved project EnerQuant. Within a consortium consisting of Heidelberg University, Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics (ITWM), and JoS QUANTUM GmbH, a theory postdoc position is available to work on quantum annealing with ultracold atomic mixtures.
Our group is embedded into the INO-CNR BEC Center — a joint effort between theory and experiment, dedicated to gaining a deeper understanding of the physics related Bose–Einstein condensation with the aim of achieving precise experimental control over ultracold atomic systems.
Moreover, we are part of Q@TN — Quantum Science and Technology in Trento — an interdisciplinary organization bringing together Physicists, Computer Scientists, Mathematicians, Material Scientists, and Engineers to advance the development of quantum technologies.
We are associated partner of the BMWi project EnerQuant: Energiewirtschaftliche Fundamentalmodellierung mit Quantenalgorithmen as well as CRC 1225 ISOQUANT: Isolated quantum systems and universality in extreme conditions.
Our group is receiving funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 ERC-2018-STG project StrEnQTh — Strong Entanglement in Quantum many-body Theory (GA 804305), the Provincia Autonoma di Trento, and Q@TN — Quantum Science and Technology in Trento.
