Miguel Aguado

Postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics, Garching, Germany.
Works on topological order and topological ideas in quantum information.

Thomas Barthel

i'm interested in strongly correlated quantum systems (phases, dynamics, scaling of entanglement) and work on numerical techniques like DMRG and tensor network states.

Sylvain Capponi

is professor at Toulouse University, interested in strongly correlated systems, quantum magnetism, spin liquids, cold atoms, and computational techniques.

Sarang Gopalakrishnan

grad student at UIUC; KITP fellow. Interested in: non-equilibrium phenomena, quantum criticality, disordered systems, and glassiness, especially in the ultracold-atomic setting.

Kenji Harada

I'm an assistant professor at Kyoto University and I'm interested in strongly correlated quantum systems (exotic quantum phase, phase transition) and computational approaches for them (in particular, loop algorithm and MERA).
