Bruno Bertini

Research Fellow

I am a theoretical physicist studying complex many-particle quantum systems. My work lies on the boundary between mathematical physics and condensed matter. The main theme of my research is non-equilibrium quantum many-body dynamics.

After my undergraduate studies at the University of Pisa and at the Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa, I obtained my PhD from the University of Oxford. I spent two years as a post-doctoral research fellow at SISSA in Trieste, Italy, and three years at the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia. I then joined the Condensed Matter Theory group in Oxford in October 2020 as a Royal Society University Research Fellow.

An updated list of my publications can be found here

February 2019: Lecturer at SFT 2019 (GGI, Florence). Course: Transport in closed one­dimensional systems

January 2019: Lecturer at the University of Ljubljana. Course: Selected Topics in Theoretical Physics

MT 2013: Tutor for C6 (Theoretical physics for master students of the final year)

The main theme of my research is non-equilibrium quantum many-body dynamics. I chose to work in this field because it poses some of the most interesting questions of modern theoretical physics: it explores new emergent dynamical phenomena as well as long-standing gaps in our fundamental understanding of Nature. Recently, however, my work also led me to consider aspects of many-body quantum chaos.
