Abstract content <br> &nbsp; (Max 300 words)

We consider the dissipative dynamics of a spinless electron (fermion) strongly interacting with a finite bath of fermions. The fermionic environment is embedded in a bosonic Markovian bath. The master equation for the fermion interacting with the fermionic bath is derived. Based on the master equation for the fermion interacting with a fermionic bath, the reduced dynamics and thermalization of the spinless electron is studied.
