We work in quantum mechanics and its foundations: the measurement problem, the meaning of the wave function, entaglement and nonlocality, the quantum-to-classical transition, the relation between quantum theory and relativity/gravity.

Collapse and Cosmology, latest paper on JHEP
If one assumes Quantum Mechanics to be valid at all scales, then one can apply it to describe the evolution of the whole Universe as a system. Since we describe the structure of space-time observed today in terms of a classical theory, then a quantum-to-classical transition must have occurred at…
Noisy gates for simulating quantum computers, our team on PRR
Current quantum computers contain hundreds of qubits a number large enough to perform interesting tasks. However, quantum computers are far from being ideal: they are prone to errors due to noises, which limit their capabilities. The scientific community is devoting a lot of effort in order to understand the impact of…
Quantum computation research on PRL
Arrays of cold atoms in optical tweezers are emerging as a promising candidate for developing quantum information processing architectures; striking results in the last few years range from the exploration of many-body dynamics to quantum optimization and computation. Yet, while coherent many-body dynamics can be controlled with high fidelity by…
Frontiers of Matter Wave Optics School and Conference
Matter-wave interferometry has remarkably advanced with systems as diverse as electrons, neutrons, cold atoms, molecules and nanoparticles. The conference Foundations of Matter-Wave Optics (FOMO) unites world experts in the field to review the state-of-art and to discuss new challenges. For more information, see the dedicated page at FOMO.
