Ruben joined Harvard in the Fall of 2019 as a postdoc in the group of Prof. Vishwanath. His research interests are focused on the interplay of emergent phenomena in many-body quantum physics, such a topological order, quantum criticality, quasiparticle dynamics and lattice gauge theories. These phenomena are explored using both analytic (e.g., field theory, solvable lattice models, tensor networks) and numeric (e.g., density matrix renormalization group, quantum monte carlo) methods. He is also excited about exploring such collective quantum phenomena in cold atom systems---in system sizes going far beyond what can be simulated with classical computers, and with a degree of coherent quantum control that is incomparable to solid state systems.
