I am a postdoctoral researcher in mathematical physics based in Laboratoire de mathématiques AGM in Cergy-Pontoise, within the scope of the ANR project NonStops (Nonequilibrium Stochastic and Open Systems). Before, I was a postdoc at ETH Zürich in the group of Gian Michele Graf, and in Roma La Sapienza in the group of Gianluca Panati. I defended my Ph.D thesis, supervided by Krzystof Gawedzki, at Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon in December 2015.
My work focuses on the definition and study of topological indices in condensed matter systems such as topological insulators and some generalization of it. What I particularly like in this field is the strong connection between mathematics and physics: going from mathematical theorems to physical observables, and vice-versa. More precisely, I have been studying the following topics:
- Topology in the shallow-water model
- Disordered systems and Anderson localization
- Topology of periodically driven (Floquet) systems and quantum walks
- Time-reversal invariant topological insulators
- Non-equilibirum stationary states in junctions of quantum wires
- Conformal field theory
