Postdoctoral Fellow


Quantum mesoscopic systems: non-equilibrium transport, thermopower, Green’s function formalism.

Random matrix theory: time delay statistics, impurity scattering problems, disordered systems, dephasing phonons, Keldysh formalism, open systems, low dimensional systems.

Magnetic textures: spin dynamics, domain walls,  interaction with light, magnetic texture in materials.

Research Interests

My research consists in studying quantum transport using time-dependent Hamiltonians. In particular, I focus on  magnetic textures interacting with light at the mesoscopic level using the non-equilibrium Green’s function formalism. ​
