Clément Delcamp

Junior Professor in Theoretical Physics since 2023

Clément Delcamp is a theoretical physicist working on topics at the interface of condensed matter theory and algebraic topology. His current research focuses on leveraging our knowledge of topological field theory to investigate the concepts of symmetry and duality within quantum lattice models.

Clément Delcamp was born in France and completed his undergraduate studies here. Thanks to the support of a Walter-Zellidja fellowship from the French Academy, he moved to the UK in 2013 for his graduate studies, where he obtained a MSc in Quantum Fields and Fundamental Forces from Imperial College of London.

After graduating in 2018 from the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics and the University of Waterloo, he joined for three years the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics in Munich as a postdoc, followed by one year at the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems in Dresden.

In 2022, Clément Delcamp was awarded a postdoctoral fellowship from the Research Foundation – Flanders to join Ghent University. As of the 1st of October 2023, he is a junior professor of physics at IHES.
