Berislav Buca

Postdoctoral Research Assistant and College Lecturer

I am a Postdoctoral Research Assistant working in Prof D. Jaksch's Quantum Systems Engineering group. My research is theoretical and combines both analytical and numerical techniques. I also work on mathematical physics when relevant to open and many-body systems.

I completed my PhD under the supervision of Prof T. Prosen at the University of Ljubljana.

I tutor B5: General Relativity and Cosmology for Keble College, University of Oxford.

Revisions for GR will be held on 13 March 2019 8:30-12:30.

Lecture material


My research includes:

  • Open quantum systems,
  • Non-equilibrium dynamics,
  • Quantum many body systems,
  • Exact solutions and integrability,

and theoretical statistical physics, more generally.

The main goal of my work is the theoretical understanding of out-of-equilibrium many-body quantum systems, especially those that are potentially relevant for future quantum technologies.

I am currently focusing on understanding the emergence of long-time non-stationary dynamics in many-body quantum systems and how engineering external dissipation can prevent relaxation to stationarity.
