Portrait de Juan Carrasquilla

Research Interests

My main research interests concern the understanding of equilibrium and nonequilibrium properties of many-body systems through the development and use of efficient numerical simulations. In particular, I am interested in frustrated magnets, strongly interacting bosonic systems, quantum Monte Carlo simulations, DMRG simulations, and classical statistical optics.
