Research Agenda: As theoretical physicists, we employ tools from Statistical Physics, Open Quantum Dynamics, Quantum Information Theory, Quantum Optics, Quantum Field Theory, Condensed Matter Theory, and Optimal Control Theory to investigate the nonequilibrium properties of nanosystems operating far from thermal equilibrium.
