Gemma De las Cuevas

I am an Assistant Professor at the Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of Innsbruck (Austria) and the PI of the Mathematical Quantum Physics group. On the one hand, I work on some mathematical physics topics - a good entry point to this topic may be this recent paper (arXiv:2102.04240) with Tim Netzer. On the other hand, I work on notions of universality in spin physics, computation and beyond - a good entry point to this topic may be this essay. You can also see some of my talks, or the suggested literature at the Research Topics site of our group.
