I’m a PhD student in the Quantum Many Body Theory group at LMU Munich and member of the IMPRS-QST. I started my PhD under the supervision of Fabian Grusdt in March 2020. Our group is part of the chair for Theoretical Nanophysics (Prof. Uli Schollwöck). Between November 2021 and April 2022, I visited the group of Mohammad Hafezi at the Joint Quantum Institute (JQI) at the University of Maryland.
My research focuses on interacting topological phases of matter and the opportunities to study them using quantum simulators. In particular, I’m interested in fractional quantum Hall physics in lattice systems. In my work, I combine analytical approaches and numerical methods to understand such exotic states of matter. I am also developing analytical tools for low-dimensional quantum systems in collaboration with other members of our chair.
Before my PhD, I did my Master of Science in physics at LMU in the group of Matthias Punk, studying the Heisenberg-Kitaev model on a triangular lattice using field-theoretical renormalization group methods.
I also hold a BSc in mathematics from Göttingen University (2018, „Geometry of Orbifolds – Euler Characteristic and Gauss-Bonnet Theorem“ under the supervision of Thomas Schick) and a BSc in physics from LMU Munich (2016, „Aspects of Spacetime Geometry in Bosonic String Theory“ under the supervision of Stefan Groot-Nibbelink).
During my undergraduate studies in Munich I was a fellow of the Max Weber program by the Bavarian government.
