Researcher in physics - Condensed matter theory
I am doing research in
theoretical condensed-matter physics. I am interested in
statistical physics and correlated electron systems, and particulary in low
dimensionnal quantum antiferromagnets, topological phases, quantum entanglement and the
out-of-equilibrium dynamics of these systems.
NEW: Course "Parallel programming (for Physicists)
Some projects in which I have recentely been involved:
- Program on interacting topological phases of matter: TopMat [June 11th - July 6th, 2018]
- Paris-Saclay International programs for Physical SSciences and their Interfaces: PSI2.
Some selected talks and lectures:
- Talk on "Shannon entropies in quantum magnets" (LDQM2016 workshop, Lausanne, September 2016), pdf.
- Short lecture on "quantum frustrated magnets" (Workshop on "Entanglement in strongly correlated systems", Benasque, February 2016) pdf.
- Lectures on "Quantum Entanglement in condensed matter" (8 hours, IPhT, spring 2015). pdf (>100 slides, >11MB).
