Research Interests

Our group explores theoretically atomic. molecular, and optical physics in a variety of systems, including their application to quantum information science. We are especially interested in their behavior under extreme conditions, such as in ultracold atomic and molecular gases. Our goal is to investigate interactions among atoms, molecules, and ions, and to use this knowledge to gain a better understanding of fundamental processes, notably entanglement and many-body aspects of mesoscopic systems. We also study the interaction of electromagnetic fields, such as laser light, with such systems.
