My team is funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) through the Stand-Alone project "Entanglement-Based Certification of Quantum Technologies" (EBCQT, project number P 36478-N) and by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research via the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) through the flagship project "High-Performance integrated Quantum Computing" (HPQC, project number FO999897481), both funded by the European Union – NextGenerationEU.
My research interests lie in the overlap of quantum information & computation with quantum optics and quantum thermodynamics. Recently, I have been interested in entanglement theory, entanglement detection and certification in practical scenarios, and I have been investigating the connections between resources for quantum computation, quantum metrology, and quantum thermodynamics. See the Research Section of my homepage for more details.
Previously, I have worked as a Senior Postdoc at the Institut for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information - IQOQI Vienna (in the group of Marcus Huber), and as a Postdoc (Universitätsassistent) at the Institute for Theoretical Physics of the University of Innsbruck, working in the Quantum Information & Computation group with Prof. Hans J. Briegel, where I have also been teaching courses in theoretical physics. I obtained my PhD (2010-2013) under the supervision of Ivette Fuentes at the University of Nottingham. Before that, I worked in the particle physics group at the Faculty of Physics at the University of Vienna, where I studied for my diploma, supervised by Reinhold A. Bertlmann.
