Giuseppe Luca Celardo - GENERAL INFO
I had my training in complex chaotic systems, with a focus on non-linear
classical and quantum dynamics and statistical physics.
I have worked on quantum transport in mesoscopic systems (i.e. Universal Conductance Fluctuations,
Anderson Localization), dynamics and statistical mechanics of small magnetic systems and quantum computation and information.
I have an Assistant Professor position in theoretical Condensed Matter Physics at the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart in
Brescia, Italy. I am the group leader, together with Prof. F. Borgonovi, of the
Quantum Biology group within the Interdisciplinary Laboratories
for Advanced Materials Physics (iLAMP):
The general themes of my current research interests are
emergent effects in open quantum systems, focusing on the interplay
of different environments.
Together with an applicative interest, the purpose of my investigation
is also to address basic theoretical questions such as the quantum/classical transition.
The understanding of emergent properties and
the discovery of new ones, are among the grand challenges
in Condensed Matter Physics and in Basic Energy Science.
In particular I am currently working on the following research
topics: quantum transport in light
harvesting systems, within the Quantum Biology group in Italy and
other international collaborations; photon localization in cold atomic clouds,
in collaboration with the experimental group of R. Kaiser at INLN (CNRS) in Nice, France; cooperative
effects and out-of-equilibrium dynamics in many-body systems with long range interaction in collaboration with L. F. Santos at
Yeshiva University, USA.
