I am Associate Professor in Condensed
Matter Theory at the Institute for Theoretical Physics (ITFA) which makes part of
the Institute of Physics (IOP) at
the University of Amsterdam (UvA)
and the Delta Institute of Theoretical Physics (D-ITP). I am also a member of the European Tensor Network,
an affiliated member of QuSoft.
research is centered around the development and application computational
methods for the simulation of strongly correlated quantum many-body
systems, with a particular focus on 2D tensor network algorithms. These
methods can be seen as a 2D generalization of the well-known density matrix
renormalization group (DMRG) method – which is the state-of-the-art
method to simulate (quasi) 1-D systems. Recent applications of these methods
include 2D fermionic systems (e.g. t-J, Hubbard
models) related to high-Tc
superconductivity, as well as in the field of frustrated spin systems (e.g.
Shastry-Sutherland model, SU(N)
Heisenberg models, and more).
