Professor Landi received his PhD from the University of São Paulo, Brazil, in 2012. He was an assistant professor at UFABC (2013-2016), and at the University of São Paulo (2016-2022). He joined the University of Rochester in 2022 as an associate professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy. He is also an associate editor at PRX Quantum, and a member of the Brazilian Physical Society.

Research Overview

Professor Landi’s research is in the field of theoretical quantum information sciences and technologies. He is a specialist in the field of open quantum systems, with applications to quantum thermodynamics, quantum transport and quantum metrology. In particular, his research focuses on reformulating the laws of thermodynamics, and concepts such as resource expenditure and irreversibility, within a quantum-coherent context. The research aims to address fundamental questions, as well as propose novel applications in quantum sensing, energy harvesting devices and quantum computing.
