We seek to understand how the world works at the small scale. Quantum mechanics is the fascinating field that studies how nature works on the nano- and microscales. Several questions are still under investigation: What is the nature of the transition between the quantum mechanical laws and those of ordinary classical mechanics that large systems obey? How can one use the stronger coherences that arise in quantum systems to make possible more precise measurements or quicker computations?

We are a young theoretical quantum physics group working on addressing these questions from the lovely island of Malta. Our work spans the fields of quantum optics, including quantum optomechanics and quantum information, and quantum thermodynamics.
