Recently the simulation of quantum field theories using man-made physical systems has become realistic. In this publication we present numerical results which support the use of quantum simulation experiments to study quantum field theories at non-zero chemical potential. We have numerically simulated the (1+1)-d $\mathbb{C}$P(2) model, which shares several interesting features with QCD, namely asymptotic freedom, a dynamically generated mass gap and topological sectors, via dimensional reduction of a (2+1)-d microscopic theory of SU(3) quantum spins. Numerical results for the particle number density as a function of chemical potential are presented.
