Research interests

Theoretical physicist in the field of Quantum Science and Technology, I am mostly focused on fundamental aspects but I also enjoy working on the design of deep-technology applications. My research activity follows two main research axes:
(1) The study of quantum light-matter interactions, especially in extreme or unconventional regimes achievable with parametric, ultrastrong or nonlinear couplings. I derive and analyze quantum models for a variety of solid-state (superconducting circuits, integrated photonics, opto/electromechanical devices), molecular (nanophotonics) and atomic (trapped ions, ultracold atoms) systems, using both analytical and numerical tools.
The development Quantum Information protocols (sensing, simulation, communication, computation), both intended as a conceptual framework to investigate fundamental properties of the quantum world and as a practical method to design quantum technologies which outperform current devices.
