Research interests

My research is at the interplay between mesoscopic physics, quantum thermodynamics and quantum information theory. It focuses on developing theoretical tools to understand the dynamics of out-of-equilibrium open quantum systems, building connections between quantum information tools and thermodynamic quantities, and proposing adequate mesoscopic devices to foster both theory and experimental achievements.
