Research Areas: The physics of quantum information and quantum computation (use of quantum computers for physics simulations, study of quantum algorithms as dynamical systems, study of potential physical realizations of quantum computers, quantum error correction, etc). Decoherence and the physics of the quantum to classical boundary (decoherence for classically chaotic systems, decoherence and quantum measurement, controlled decoherence experiments, etc). The dynamics of phase transitions (nonequilibrium and quantum effects in phase transitions, defect formation, etc). Quantum process and state tomography. Quantum optics.
