Research Interests

My research is concerned with the properties of open quantum systems, with the work primarily done in collaboration with Steve Barnett and his group at the University of Glasgow and Erika Andersson and her group at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh. Recent projects have included studies of Markovian and non-Markovian master equations, (unpublished) studies of heat transport in non-equilibrium quantum thermodynamical systems, and more recently finding exact solutions to models of systems strongly coupled to their environment.
