about me


I am Assistant 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,  and a visiting fellow at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics (PI) in Waterloo, Canada.


My 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).
