Current Research Interests


My theoretical research interests are mainly focussed on quantum transport (Anderson localization, coherent forward scattering and backscattering effects, multifractality), strongly-correlated systems, spectral graphs and machine learning, thermalization and condensation from a quantum gases perspective.
