Previously, I led EPSRC’s COVID-19 team to deliver phase 2 of UKRI’s Agile COVID-19 response. Simultaneously, I was a Senior Portfolio Manager in the Impact and Business Engagement teams.
Before joining EPSRC, I worked on understanding the properties of strongly correlated low-dimensional systems as an academic theoretical physicist. My academic career featured stints in the Netherlands, the USA, and the UK, as well as participation in numerous international collaborations. My best known works focussed on understanding non-equilibrium physics, particularly real-time dynamics, thermalization and its absence in low-dimensional quantum systems.
