Guillermo Preisser (PhD student): Guillermo studied physics a the National Autonomous University of Mexico in Mexico City and graduated in 2019. For his PhD studies he moved to Strasbourg in February 2020. He is working on the QUSTEC PhD project on "Semi-classical modelling of open quantum technology platforms", and exploring new types of MPS/tensor network codes for analyzing entanglement dynamics in quantum many-body systems.

Former members

David Wellnitz (PhD student): From 2013 to 2018, David studied physics at the University of Heidelberg. In 2018, he graduated (group of M. Weidemüller) on the application of network theory to atomic spectra. For his PhD studies he moved to Strasbourg in Nov. 2018. He was working on the LabEx NIE project: "Novel approaches to quantum many-body dynamics in molecular complexes", and exploring collective dynamics in collective light matter coupled-systems. He is now a post-doc at JILA in Boulder, CO, US.

Stefan Schütz (post-doc): Stefan obtained his PhD degree in physics at the Saarland University in Saarbrücken, Germany. In Strasbourg, from Oct. 2017 - Dec. 2018 he was working on the IdEx Attractivité project "Simulation of transport in engineered many-body quantum systems" (STEMQuS). He laid important foundations for exploring cavity-coupled many-body dynamics by applying adiabatic elimination theories.

Tiago Santiago do Espirito Santo (visiting PhD): Tiago studied Physics at the Universidade Federal de São Carlos (UFSCar) in Brazil and received his PhD degree in 2020 (under the supervision of R. Bachelard, He was visiting our team from Sep. 2017 – Mar. 2018 and worked on numerical modeling of cold atom light-scattering experiments.
