2020-04-01 - Senior Research Scientist (concurrent) (Main: RIKEN Hakubi Team Leader, Nonequilibrium Quantum Statistical Mechanics RIKEN Hakubi Research Team, RIKEN Cluster for Pioneering Research (CPR))


My name is Ryusuke Hamazaki. I am a senior research scientist at iTHEMS and also a RIKEN Hakubi leader of a team on nonequilibrium statistical mechanics. So far I have worked on foundation of equilibrium quantum statistical mechanics, namely how isolated quantum many-body systems relax to thermal equilibrium after long time. Extending this framework, I am currently trying to understand laws of nonequilibrium quantum statistical mechanics. Another motivation of mine is to apply the theory to other nonequilibrium science, such as biology or high-energy physics. I am eager to discuss and collaborate with one another to contribute to interdisciplinary fields through universality of statistical mechanics!
