Martin Claassen, Ph.D.

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 investigating non-equilibrium and driven quantum systems with strong correlations or topological order. Martin has a 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 B.Sc. in electrical engineering from ETH Zurich, Switzerland.
