Progress in quantum technologies relies on understanding how quantum phenomena govern the dynamics of quantum systems far from equilibrium and on identifying the available quantum resources. This knowledge then allows us to manipulate the systems in order to obtain the desired outcome. Our group seeks to:
(i) Develop dynamical descriptions that capture the effects of quantum phenomena on the single-atom/molecule level and for systems far from equilibrium.
(ii) Identify quantum resources and utilize them in controlling quantum transport processes and quantum state preparation.
(iii) Thoroughly define the relationship between quantum effects and concepts from non-equilibrium thermodynamics.
