I am excited to join the operator algebra group as an associate professor. My research is on mathematical aspects of quantum information theory with a focus on quantum Shannon theory, entanglement theory, and their interplay with operator algebra.
I obtained my PhD in 2015 from the Technical University Munich and worked as a postdoc at the Centre of Mathematics in Quantum Theory (QMATH) at the University of Copenhagen until 2019. From 2019 to 2021 I was a Marie-Sklodowska-Curie fellow at the Institute Camille Jordan at University of Lyon 1.
Besides mathematical research, I enjoy spending time with my family and juggling balls, clubs, and the challenges of life in general. Among my proudest achievements is a method for cutting three circular cakes exactly in half using a knife alone.
