Gemma De las Cuevas

I am an Assistant Professor in Theoretical Physics at the University of Innsbruck, Austria, where I am the PI of the Mathematical Quantum Physics group. On the one hand, I work at the intersection of mathematical physics and quantum many-body physics (see 1907.036641903.053731909.017371912.07332, 2004.10219 for some recent works). On the other hand, I work on notions of universality in spin physics (see here), computation and beyond (see this essay). For an introduction into some of these topics, see some of my talks, or the suggested literature at the Research Topics site of our group.
