Research interests

  • Nonequilibrium quantum transport in nanostructures (molecules & quantum dots) - electron-vibration effects, current noise, full counting statistics
  • Microscopic theory of nanoscopic Josephson junctions made of carbon nanotubes or semiconducting nanowires - impurity quantum phase transition, supercurrent, interplay with the Kondo effect
  • Stochastic dynamics both classical and quantum - bistability and switching, stochastic thermodynamics
