About me

I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) at the Department of Computing Imperial College London. 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.

Previously, I was Postdoctoral Researcher at the Institute for Quantum Information and Matter California Institute of Technology, where I worked with John Preskill and Fernando Brandão. I obtained my PhD degree from the Institute for Theoretical Physics at ETH Zurich under the supervision of Matthias Christandl.
