I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Institute for Quantum Information and Matter (IQIM), California Institute of Technology (Caltech). Currently, I am on an Advanced Postdoc.Mobility Fellowship from the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF), working with Fernando Brandão.
Previously, I was a Postdoc at IQIM Caltech with John Preskill. Before that, I obtained my PhD degree from the Institute for Theoretical Physics at ETH Zurich under the supervision of Matthias Christandl.
My research area is quantum information theory, with a focus on quantum Shannon theory and quantum cryptography. I am interested in connections to mathematical physics, most importantly through the fields of matrix analysis and (non-commutative) optimization theory.
