Within the Synthetic Quantum Systems group, we are developing experimental and theoretical methods for quantum many-body systems in and out of equilibrium. We focus, in particular, on ultracold atomic quantum gases, universal dynamics, long-time evolution and thermalisation, quantum field simulation, strong correlations and entanglement, and the representation of quantum systems by artificial neural networks.
