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.
