After my PhD research at Saarland University, in the theoretical quantum physics group of Giovanna Morigi, I joined Guido Pupillo‘s group in October 2016. My focus lies on the studies of open quantum systems in the framework of Quantum Master Equations in order to describe effective interactions that are mediated by auxiliary systems, e.g. confined light fields. Its presence can, for instance, induce collective dissipative processes and alter transport properties. Such effects open the way to modify properties of light and matter in a desired manner.
Keywords: Quantum Master Equation, light-matter interactions, effective coherent and dissipative couplings
