Frank Pollmann (group leader). My research interests are in theoretical condensed matter physics and in particular in systems with strongly correlated electrons. My current research activities focus on topological phases of matter, fractionalization on geometrically frustrated lattices, and the applications of quantum information concepts to quantum many-body systems.
Johannes Motruk (postdoc). I am interested in topological phases in interacting fermonic systems.
Siddhardh Morampudi (phd student)I am interested in the entanglement in topologically ordered systems.
personal_picture Giuseppe De Tomasi (PhD student). I am interested in many-body localization.
2015-07-02 11.19.20 Johannes Hauschild (PhD student). I am interested in the dynamics of many-body systems.

xuefeng  Xuefeng Zhang  (Postdoc). My research focuses on the novel phases in the strongly correlated frustrated system, especially the supersolid phase which breaks both transitional and rotational symmetries.
ruben Ruben Verresen (PhD Student). I am interested in entanglement, particularly its emergent properties in topological quantum matter. I like to use both analytic and numerical methods.
