I currently hold a Glasstone Research Fellowship at the University of Oxford and a research fellowship at Lady Margaret Hall. Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Materials of the University of Oxford working on the quantum theory of early quantum computers. I completed my PhD at the Technical University of Munich in mathematical physics working on fundamental aspects of quantum theory.
My current research focuses on the theory of quantum computers: These machines operate according to laws of quantum physics and might help us to solve important practical problems in materials science or in drug discovery. I have been developing and analysing quantum algorithms that specifically target near-term quantum computers, but I am also generally interested in fundamental and mathematical aspects of quantum theory.
