Alessio Celi

Alessio Celi is UAB Talent researcher (assistant professor) of the Physics Department at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) and Visiting Scientist at ICFO since 2019. After research training (PhD at U. Milan) and experience as postdoctoral researcher (K.U.Leuven) and Juan de la Cierva fellow (U.Barcelona) in supergravity and string theory, he moved in 2009 to quantum simulation with ultracold atoms of condensed matter and high energy phenomena, before as a postdoctoral researcher at Universitat de Barcelona, then as Research Fellow at ICFO (2011-2017) and as senior postdoctoral research at Innsbruck Universität and IQOQI (2018), where he coordinated the artificial gravity, topological physics and lattice gauge theory activities of Prof. Lewenstein and Prof. Zoller groups, respectively. He has applied his original HEP background to quantum technologies by proposing: (i) novel tools for quantum simulation based on HEP ideas (synthetic lattices). (ii) Efficient methods for simulating gravity and LGT with ultracold atoms. Author of about 50 publications at the interface between gravity, HEP, and AMOP. He is the coordinator of project QUASICAT, the quantum simulation pillar of QUANTUMCAT, the Catalan flagship in quantum tecnologies that involves the main research centres in the Barcelona area.
