Matthias Christandl appointed professor


With effect of April 1, the Dean has appointed Matthias Christandl as Professor for Mathematical Physics at the Department of Mathematical Sciences. He is working with the research group Geometric Analysis and Mathematical Physics.

Matthias Christandl Matthias’ research is in the area of Quantum Information Theory. It is his aim to improve our understanding of the ultimate limits of computation and communication given by quantum theory. Concrete research results range from new protocols for the communication with single quantum particles (e.g. photons) to a new measure for quantum entanglement.

Matthias Christandl received his PhD from the University of Cambridge in 2006. He then became a Thomas Nevile Research Fellow at Magdalene College Cambridge. In 2008, he joined the faculty of the University of Munich as a Junior-professor; since 2010 he has been assistant professor at ETH Zurich.
