Andreas Nunnenkamp is an Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Physics of the University of Vienna. The central theme in his research group is how to create, control, and exploit quantum coherence in synthetic many-body systems. In particular, he currently works on the interplay of interactions, topology, and disorder and their control via measurement, backaction, and dissipation. He aims at developing novel designs for quantum technologies and at contributing to a deeper understanding of the dynamics of many-body systems. He collaborates frequently with experimental groups in the fields of optomechanics, ultracold gases, superconducting circuits, and optomagnonics.
