Research Interests

Education

2015 -  Physics BSc, Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Budapest, Hungary, Faculty of physicist.
Thesis: Scanning tunnelling microscopy investigation of graphene grown
on Cu(110) crystal.

Supervisor: Nemes-Incze Péter


I investigated a prefabricated sample using a UHV scanning tunnelling microscope at
low temperatures. During my work I focused mainly on the electronic structure of the
sample considering the relative orientation of the grown graphene and the bulk Cu(110).

 

2019 - Physics MSc, Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Budapest, Hungary, Faculty of research physicist.


Thesis: Theoretical modelling of the collective tunnelling of a Wigner
necklace.

Supervisor: Dr. Zaránd Gergely Attila


Within my thesis, I was modelling a one-dimensional carbon nanotube
system. In order to describe the system’s behaviour I did classical
and quantum-mechanical calculations, these are complemented with Monte-Carlo
simulations as well. The goal is to describe the experimentally relevant many-body tunnelling phenomena in
the carbon nanotube.

 

2021 - Physics PhD, Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Budapest, Hungary, Doctoral School of Physical Sciences, Theoretical physics department.

Thesis: Matrix product approaches for correlated and open quantum systems
