Paweł Caputa is a faculty member at the University of Warsaw and the leader of our group founded by the „Polish Returns 2019” program of NAWA. Before coming back to Poland, he was the It from Qubit fellow and research assistant professor at the Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics in Kyoto, Japan. He received his Ph.D. from the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen in 2011 and was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, and the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics in Stockholm, Sweden, bridged by the short-term Japan Society for the Promotion of Science fellowship in Kyoto. He has worked on integrability, 1/N corrections and tests of the AdS/CFT correspondence. His recent work focuses on entanglement dynamics and complexity in quantum field theories, emergent geometry from entanglement, quantum gravity and AdS/CFT.
Meet our team of international researchers with various scientific backgrounds. Our interests span from quantum information in quantum field theories, Berry Phases, Computational Complexity and AdS/CFT correspondence to running, playing piano, high jumping and break dance.
Dongsheng Ge, Ph.D.Post-Doc
Hey, I am Dongsheng, a postdoc at QIQG group at the University of Warsaw. Originally I am from Huanggang, a small city near Wuhan. After I graduated from Wuhan University, I started my academic and cultural journey in Europe. I have been enrolled in the Joint Master Program of High Energy Physics between ETH Zurich and Ecole Polytechnique of Paris, where I spent one year at each institute. Paris has been attractive to me, thus I stayed at Ecole Normale Superieure de Paris for the last four years, where I obtained my PhD under the supervision of Dr. Giuseppe Policastro. In terms of research, I have been fascinated by the holographic way of understanding the nature of physics. It offers a rather special perspective to anatomise the geometry of the spacetime, so as to uncover certain information hidden behind. More specifically, I have been exploring the gravitational aspects of some quantum information objects such as the entanglement entropy and quantum complexity, as well as understanding them from a QFT perspective. Another facet of my current research interests is to understand the gluing of both gravitational theories and quantum field theories, nouveau features usually arise in this setup…
Sinong Liu, Ph.D.Post-Doc
This is Sinong, a postdoc in QIQG group at the University of Warsaw. During the past ten years I was all the way north. Leaving from my hometown Fuzhou I went to Fudan University in Shanghai for my undergraduate education, then I became the student of Professor Sumit R. Das and was conferred a Ph.D degree at University of Kentucky in USA, and finally I am in Warsaw. Looking back at the past years, my researches consist of a bit of non-equilibrium physics associated with quantum quench, a bit of tensor network as a means of understanding AdS/CFT correspondence, and a bit of applications of quantum entanglement and complexity. I am still interested with all those topics, and I am still curious about more.
Dimitrios Patramanis, M.Sc.Graduate Student
Dimitrios started his academic career in the field of chemistry where he received Bachelor’s degree. However, it was not long before he realized that his true interests lied in theoretical physics which was broadly the topic
of his Master’s level studies. More specifically, Dimitrios is fascinated by inquiries about the microscopic constituents of our universe and how those can give birth to the large scale structures that we observe. Currently, Dimitrios research focuses on aspects of holography and in particular the AdS/CFT correspondence. These serve as tools for the construction of toy models that can help us reconcile Einstein’s general relativity and quantum field theory in a controlled setting while also opening a path leading to a full-fledged theory of quantum gravity suitable for describing our universe. Moreover, Dimitrios is also very interested in science communication and popularization.
