Previous work
Mattia Walschaers got his PhD from the universities of Freiburg (Germany) and Leuven (Belgium) for a cotutelle project, supervised by Andreas Buchleitner and Mark Fannes. His work initially focused on the role of quantum effects in photosynthesis, where he developed analytically solvable toy models to better understand the role of disorder in coherent transport of photosynthetic excitons. Later on, his interest shifted to manyparticle systems. First he tried to understand the highest possible current that can flow through manyfermion systems in a nonequilibrium steady state. Then the attention shifted to dynamical features of manyparticle systems on transient time scales. In particular, Mattia spent a big part of the final years of his PhD project working on manyparticle interference a phenomenon which induced by indistinguishability of quantum particles. This ultimately led to the development of an experimentally implementable statistical benchmark for boson sampling.
The resulting dissertation was published as a book in the Springer Theses series, and it was also one of the four nominees for the SAMOP dissertation prize of the German Physical Society.
Since September 2016, Mattia is a postdoctoral researcher in multimode quantum optics group of the Laboratoire Kastler Brossel, where his research interests shifted to continuousvariable quantum optics and quantum information. With specific interest for highly multimode systems, he mixes standard approaches in the field with tools from statistical physics. At the moment, most of his attention is devoted to understanding experimentally feasible nonGaussian states in these systems. As such, he used techniques based on multimode correlation functions to develop a general framework to study multimode photon addition and subtraction. Between May 2018 and October 2019, Mattia was funded by a research fellowship from the German Research Foundation (DFG) to extend his stay at the LKB and further explore these topics.
Current work
In April 2019, Mattia was recruited by the CNRS and in October 2019 he started a permanent research position at the LKB. His research builds up on his postdoc work in the multimode quantum optics group, where he now explores various aspects of continuous variable quantum physics. Among current research interests: multimode nonGaussian quantum states, quantum correlations in CV systems, quantum batteries, complex quantum networks, and applications of machine learning in quantum experiments
