Fabian Essler

Professor of Theoretical Physics

I am a condensed matter theorist working on low dimensional quantum many-body systems. I also have long-standing interests in quantum integrable models and classical driven diffusive systems. I have co-authored a monograph on the exact solution of the one dimensional Hubbard model. Some of my current research interests are non-equilibrium evolution in quantum many-body systems, finite-temperature dynamical response in integrable models and the calculation of subleading contributions in entanglement entropies.

I have been an elected member of the Council of Oxford University since 2018.

I am currently lecturing the second year undergraduate Quantum Mechanics course.

I won MPLS Teaching Excellence Awards in 2015 for my lectures that formed part of the C6 major option in Theoretical Physics, and in 2019 for my lectures on Quantum Mechanics. Lecture notes on some of the courses I have taught in the past can be found on my website.
