Current group members are listed below. We are looking for new people, see the list of Open Positions. We are located on the second floor of Office Building West, see Contacts for additional details and directions.
Principal investigator
Maksym Serbyn
Maksym started his faculty appointment at IST in July 2017. He is interested in better theoretical understanding nonequilibrium properties of quantum systems using variety of analytical and numerical approaches.

Postdocs
Alexios Michailidis
Alex arrived to IST in December of 2017 after a short postdoctoral appointment at University of Leeds. He is mainly interested in ergodicity breaking nonequilibrium quantum dynamics. He applies a variety of numerical and analytical tools to study dynamical properties of manybody localized systems, models with a large mismatch of dynamical timescales, and kinematically constrained models.

Academic Visitors
Anna Goremykina
Anna is visiting IST from University of Geneva where she is pursuing her PhD degree. Anna is interested in nonequilibrium properties of low dimensional quantum systems. During her visit Anna is working on the dynamical responses of manybody localized phase and properties of manybody delocalization transition.

Interns
Peng Rao
Rao joined IST in October 2017 as a scientific intern. He is interested in the condensed matter physics, including low dimensional systems and superconductivity. At IST Rao is working on the superconductivity in spinorbit coupled systems.

Our Alumni
Margarita Davydova
Margarita spent two months in summer of 2017 as an intern at IST Austria. Her main scientific interests are in the field of magnetic properties and spin dynamics in multiferroics. At IST Margarita was working on understanding nonlinear optical responses of solids.

Ziruo Zhang
Ziruo spent two months in summer of 2017 as an intern at IST Austria. His main interests are in the field of theoretical physics. At IST Ziruo was investigating properties of matrix elements in the manybody localized phase.
