Professor John Cardy

Visiting Professor, University of California, Berkeley
Emeritus Fellow since 2014

I am a theoretical physicist who applies the methods of quantum field theory to problems in statistical and condensed matter physics. In the past I helped develop the tools of conformal field theory which had applications also to string theory and black holes. In recent years I have investigated questions of quantum entanglement and non-equilibrium behaviour in many-body systems such as quantum spin chains and ultra-cold atoms.
