Oscar Dahlsten

Postdoctoral Researcher, Department of Physics

College position:

Dr Oscar Dahlsten researches the foundations of quantum theory and statistical mechanics. He looks for better ways of understanding quantum phenomena, often from a quantum information theory perspective. He is one of the pioneers of a new type of statistical mechanics called single-shot statistical mechanics where one focusses on guaranteed behaviours rather than average behaviours, a distinction which is particularly important in nano and quantum regimes.
