Martin Claassen, Ph.D.

Flatiron Research Fellow, Flatiron Institute

Martin Claassen joined the Simons Foundation in 2017 as a research fellow at the Center for Computational Quantum Physics. His research focuses on nonequilibrium and driven quantum systems with strong correlations or topological order. Claassen received his Ph.D. in applied physics from Stanford University, where he worked on photo-induced topological states of matter and lattice realizations of the fractional quantum Hall effect. He holds an M.Sc. and a B.Sc. in electrical engineering from ETH Zurich.
