Dr Francesco Campaioli

Research Fellow

I recently joined the centre of excellence to study the dynamics of excitons. I will be using methods from the theory of open quantum system and quantum information to investigate how genuinely quantum mechanical effects play a role in the transport of energy and charge for organic and inorganic semiconductors. During my doctoral studies, conducted at Monash University, my research has focused on the interpretation of time-energy uncertainty relations, which provide a bound on the speed of quantum evolution. I studied these bounds with analytical and numerical methods, improving their performance and applying them to information-theoretical and thermodynamical tasks.
