I am currently (since March 2017) a Senior Postdoc at the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI) in Vienna in the group of Marcus Huber.
My research interests lie in the overlap of quantum information & computation with quantum optics and quantum thermodynamics. Recently, I have been interested in investigating the connections between resources for quantum computation and quantum metrology. See the Research Section of my homepage for more details.
Previously, I have worked 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.
