Cheng Peng is a postdoc scholar at the Stanford Institute for Materials and Energy Sciences (SIMES). Her research focuses on strongly correlated systems through numeric methods. She was a visiting student at ICFO in 2016. She obtained her Doctor degree of theoretical physics at University of Chinese Academy of Sciences in the year of 2018. She has been working mostly on applying matrix product state / matrix product operator (MPS/MPO) based density matrix renormalization group and tensor network algorithms to study a variety of spin and fermionic systems.Xi Chen
obtained his PhD in theoretical physics in 2019. He has been working mostly on frustrated spin system, quantum spin liquid and topological ordered states by utilizing tensor network methods. He has published several peer-reviewed articles in international journals.
Luca Tagliacozzo is a Lecturer in Physics and Chancellor's fellow at the University of Strathclyde since 2015. He is currently on leave to the Universitat de Barcelona as a Ramon y Cajal fellow. He obtained is Master degree at Universita degli studi di Torino in 2000 and two PhD in high-energy physics in 2006 from the Politecnico di Torino and the Universitat de Barcelona. He was a post-doctoral fellow at the Universitat de Barcelona (2006-2007), the University of Queensland (2008-2010) and a Marie Curie Fellow at ICFO (2010-2015).
His research focuses on the quantum many-body problem in and out of equilibrium using tensor networks and quantum simulations. He also actively works on the connections of these approaches to statistical mechanics and high-energy physics.
Gang Su is Distinguished Professor and Vice-President at University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (UCAS), where he has taught and worked on condensed matter theory, statistical physics and computational physics for more than twenty-five years. He has obtained his bachelor's degree of Science and Ph.D. in theoretical physics at Lanzhou University, China. In 1993-99, he worked as a CEEC research fellow at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, USA, an Alexander von Humboldt research fellow at Koeln University, Germany, and a JSPS research fellow at Tokyo University of Science, Japan. He has published more than 240 papers. His research projects have been funded by the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST), the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). He received a few honors including China National Natural Sciences Award, China MOE Natural Sciences Award, and CAIA Award.
Maciej Lewenstein (Warsaw 1955) graduated at Warsaw University in 1978. He joined the Centre for Theoretical Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, where he remained for 15 years, becoming a professor in 1993. He finished his PhD in Essen in 1983 and habilitated in 1986 in Warsaw. He has spent several long term visits at Universitat Essen, at Harvard University with Roy J. Glauber (Nobel 2005), at Commisariat a l'Energie Atomique in Saclay and at Joint Institute for Laboratory Astrophysics at Boulder. He was on faculty of CEA in Saclay (1995-1998), of the Leibniz University Hannover (1998-2005). In 2005 he moved to Catalonia as ICREA Research Professor to lead the quantum optics theory at the Institut de Ciencies Fotoniques in Castelldefels. His interests include quantum optics, quantum physics, quantum information, attosecond science, and statistical physics. His other passion is jazz and avant-garde music - he is an acclaimed jazz writer and critic.
