Tom Iadecola


Dr. Iadecolais a theoretical physicist using diverse analytical and numerical tools to study a variety of topics in quantum condensed matter. A graduate of Brown University (Sc.B., 2012), he received his Ph.D. in Physics from Boston University in 2017. He then became a JQI Theoretical Postdoctoral Fellow at the NIST-University of Maryland Joint Quantum Institute until 2019, when he joined Iowa State University as an Assistant Professor. Research in his group focuses on out-of-equilibrium quantum systems and topological phases with a view towards emerging quantum technologies. On the nonequilibrium side, he studies properties of highly-excited many-body states and the surprising phenomena they harbor that challenge deeply ingrained intuition based on quantum statistical mechanics. On the topological side, he focuses on states of matter whose properties cannot be understood within the traditional paradigm of spontaneous symmetry breaking, and which could enable the robust storage and manipulation of quantum information. In addition to thinking about new phenomena, he grapples with ways to realize them in electronic and photonic systems, or using near-term quantum platforms.
