About me

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems (Dresden, Germany), working with Pieter W. Claeys. Before (October 2020 - July 2023), I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (Beer-Sheva, Israel), working with Yevgeny Bar Lev. In January 2021, I obtained my PhD at the University of Amsterdam (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) under the joint supervision of Vladimir Gritsev (University of Amsterdam) and Vadim Cheianov (Leiden University).

Research interests

I am working on the emergence and breakdown of ergodicity in quantum many-body systems. I am particularly interested in quantum chaos, non-equilibrium dynamics, and random matrix theory. My research involves both analytical and numerical techniques.
