I am heading the Research Group Entanglement of Complex Quantum Systems
within the Theory Division at
the Max-Planck-Institute of Quantum Optics. In our group, we apply concepts from quantum information, and in
particular entanglement theory, to study the rich variety of physical phenomena observed in complex interacting
quantum many-body systems:
- we work towards a comprehensive classification of the different types of entangled quantum matter and
their characterization from local properties, based on tensor networks;
- we apply tensor network methods for the variational modeling and study of specific strongly correlated
systems of interest;
- we utilize tools from quantum complexity theory to understand the ultimate limitations to our ability to
capture the behavior displayed by strongly correlated systems.

I am also a lecturer at the Technical University Munich.
Lecture in winter term 2018/19:
Before moving to the Max-Planck-Institute of Quantum Optics, I have been an assistant professor at the Institute for Quantum Information
of RWTH Aachen
University; some information on previous teaching and students at Aachen can also be found below.
