Tommaso Roscilde, physicist, Laboratoire de physique



Born in 1975, Tommaso Roscilde graduated from the University of Florence in Italy. In 2003, he defended a PhD thesis – Phase transitions and crossovers in two-dimensional anise tropic quantum anti-ferromagnets – at the University of Padua under the guidance of Pietro Carretta. After two years of post-doctoral studies at the University of Southern California, in the United States, and then another two years at the Max-Planck Institute for Quantum Optics in Germany, he became a lecturer at the Physics Laboratory at ENS de Lyon in 2009.

Tommaso Roscilde's favorite research theme is the theory of quantum simulation, i.e. the controlled realization of complex quantum systems in the experiments of atomic physics and condensed matter.
