I am theoretical physicist working in quantum information science. My main research interests are quantum information processing and quantum simulation of many-body quantum physics using atomic, molecular and optical systems. During the last years, the main focus of my work has been on topological quantum computing and error correction with trapped ions, as well as the study of topological quantum phases in cold atom systems. I enjoy working at the interface between theory and experiment, and in particular to bridge the gap between theoretical models and experimental implementations.
More details on my research and a list of my publications can be found on my Personal Homepage.
