Gordon and Betty Moore Postdoctoral Fellow

Harvard University


I am a condensed matter theorist and a Gordon and Betty Moore Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard University.

I primarily study non-equilibrium many-body phenomena such as the onset of thermalization in closed quantum many-body systems, novel out-of-equilibrium quantum orders e.g. in driven systems (Floquet, time-quasiperiodic), entanglement dynamics, localization, etc. I also keep interests in a wide range of other topics including the realization of quantum computing, simulation and information processing in AMO systems as well as topological order. In my research, I utilize concepts from quantum information, like entanglement, locality, information propagation bounds, as well as mathematical physics techniques.

I received my PhD from the University of Geneva under Dmitry Abanin, my MSc from the Perimeter Institute of Theoretical Physics under Guifre Vidal, and my undergraduate BA in physics (Magna cum Laude) from Princeton University, where I worked with Duncan Haldane. I grew up in Singapore and served as an army technical officer as part of my mandatory military service.
