Davide Facoetti


I studied physics at Scuola Normale Superiore and Università di Pisa, Italy. I specialised in theoretical physics, in particular quantum field theory, many-body physics and criticality, including projects on analogue models of gravity (BSc) and entanglement in extended critical system (MSc).

The CANES MSc enabled me to expand my knowledge of statistical physics and exposed me to new concepts in the areas of complex systems, stochastic processes and networks, and their cross-disciplinary applications.


In my PhD project I apply some of these tools to study the non-equilibrium behaviour of disordered quantum systems. I work on simple(r) models with ergodicity and localisation transitions, with the goal of understanding out-of-equilibrium phases of matter, such as glassy and many-body localised systems.


PhD Project:

P40 Out-of-equilibrium quantum systems through the prism of Random Matrix Theory: how disorder and interactions affect thermalisation and integrability
