Brian Swingle is an Assistant Professor of physics at the University of Maryland, College Park. He studies the physics of quantum information, particularly in the context of quantum many-body systems and quantum gravity. His current interests include the emergence of gravity from entanglement, the efficient simulation of quantum many-body systems using entanglement-based methods, and the out-of-equilibrium dynamics of quantum information. He received his Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2011.


Seeing Scrambled Spins

Two experimental groups have taken a step towards observing the “scrambling” of information that occurs as a many-body quantum system thermalizes.   Read More »
