Gemma De las Cuevas

I am a researcher working mainly on the description of quantum many-body systems from a theoretical perspective, for which I use tensor networks. In particular I have been working on the positivity problem, which is the question of how to represent efficiently the positivity of an operator with a tensor network. I have also been working on continuum limits of matrix product states. In parallel, I have also worked on a notion of universality in spin physics which is somewhat similar to the notion of universality in computer science (by which there exist universal Turing machines).
