Emanuele G. Dalla Torre is a senior lecturer in the Department of Physics of Bar-Ilan University, Israel. Born in Italy, he earned his academic degrees in Israel, first at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology and then at the Weizmann Institute of Science. After his Ph.D., in 2011, he moved to Harvard University for three years of postdoctoral training. His research concerns theoretical aspects of the dynamics of large quantum systems. He is fascinated by the idea that complex, nonequilibrium, many-body quantum problems can often be described in terms of a small set of classical equations of motion.
