About

I am a senior research scientist at NTT Research – Physics & Informatics Lab in Silicon Valley. My main interest is in rigorously defining wavefunction branches for large out-of-equilibrium many-body systems. In the past I have worked on how to detect soft particles like sub-GeV dark matter through the decoherence it induces, a topic I still keep an eye on.

See my professional site for a brief description and links to relevant work. My email address is jessriedel at gmail, and my Twitter handle is @Jess_Riedel. If you want to do impactful work on the foundations of quantum mechanics, maybe you should come work with me.

Technical details about blog

The most visible WordPress plugins I use are WP QuickLaTeX, JQuery Hover Footnotes, Collapse-O-Matic, Table of Contents Plus, and ZotPress. I also use Better WordPress Recent Comments, Disqus Comment System, Page Links To, Public Post Preview, Shortcoder, Simple Custom CSS, and Simple Feed Stats. Feel free to email me with questions if you’re trying to replicate something.

The WordPress theme is Parabola. The banner image is Poussin’s Paysage avec Orion aveugle cherchant le soleil. The favicon is taken from Fig. 2 of “Collisions of false-vacuum bubble walls in a quantum spin chain” by Milsted, Liu, Preskill, and Vidal.
