Welcome to the Asenjo-Garcia research group at Columbia University.
In our theory group we investigate problems at the intersection of quantum optics, atomic physics, open quantum systems, and many-body physics. In particular, a significant part of our research focuses on emergent phenomena that arises from photon-mediated atomic interactions. We are interested not only in understanding fundamental physics associated with strongly-interacting atoms and photons but also in how to exploit these phenomena to develop novel applications in quantum information science, sensing, and metrology.

Our paper that shows that Dicke superradiance requires interactions beyond nearest neighbors is published in Physical Review Letters. It was fun to work with our collaborators at Caltech and Singapore.
