Research activity:

  • Nanoscopic hybrid systems- study of quantum dots and molecules connected to superconducting or metal electrodes, study of quantum phase transitions, Kondo effect, effective models, etc. using semi-analytical methods of many-body quantum mechanics
  • Electronic quantum transport- calculation of non-equilibrium transport properties of nanoscopic systems using methods of non-equilibrium quantum statistical physics including generalized master equations and nonequilibrium Green's functions
  • Stochastic processes – study of a wide range of classical and quantum stochastic processes from bubble breathing in DNA to quantum electronic noise and full counting statistics in nanoscopic transport
