strongly
correlated systems

quantum many-body systems out of equilibrium

**Mott solar cells: impact ionisation and phonon heat dissipation.**

Here you will also use and develop A Dynamical Mean Field Theory code which also includes the effects of a time periodic perturbation to investigate photovoltaic effects in correlated Mott insulators and their interplay with phonons.**Development of the Auxiliary Master equation approach**

Here you will furtehr develop a numerical approach to treat strongly-correlated systems out of equilibrium

**Correlated materials out of equilibrium from first principles**

In this thesis you will use a combination of the TransSiesta code and the so-called Auxiliary Master Equation approach developed in our group, to study transport properties of correlated materials out of equilibrium.**Simulation of Quantum Transport across a simple model for a correlated Quantum Dot.**

In this thesis you will use and further develop a code based on so-called Matrix-Product States and the Quantum Master Equation to calculate the properties of electrons moving across a correlated impurity ( a simple model for a quantum dot)**Transport in correlated interfaces and heterostructures**

Here you will use and further develop a code within Dynamical Mean-Field theory to treat correlated heterostructures out of equilibrium**Machine learning approaches for nonequilibrium impurity problems**

The approaches used in the above projects require the solution of so called impurity problems that are quite computationally demanding. Here yo will devise and develop efficient methods and strategies based on machine learning to use the available data to extrapolate to parameters ranges more difficult to access with standard approches. This part will be carried out in combination with one of the above projects.
