Cristiane de Morais Smith

Professor, Theoretical Physics, Utrecht University


I work on condensed matter physics, more specifically on strongly correlated systems. My research spans a large variety of lowdimensional quantum systems, ranging from high-temperature superconductors to quantum Hall systems, graphene, and carbon nanotubes.

More recently, I became interested in cold atoms physics. When loaded into optical lattices, ultracold quantum gases allow us to emulate condensed matter systems.

The research done in my group involves mostly analytical techniques, such as field theory, renormalization group, Chern-Simons theory, bosonization, etc. The emphasis of my research resides in the connections between different physical systems, and how the knowledge of one system can be used to help the understanding of a more complex one.

Can Consciousness Be Explained by Quantum Physics? New Research

One of the most important open questions in science is how our consciousness is established. In the 1990s, long before winning the 2020 Nobel Prize in Physics for his prediction of black holes, physicist...
