    • My research is in the area of Quantum Information Theory. It is my 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. 
    • I am part of QMATH - the Villum Centre of Excellence for the Mathematics of Quantum Theory. See here for more details.


    • You find all my publications (including preprints) on the arxiv
    • Explore multiparticle entanglement with entanglement polytopes (Science 2013).
    • Compute Kronecker coefficients for fixed #rows efficiently (FOCS 2012).


    • See prezi for my recent presentations.

    Short CV

    • I received my PhD from the University of Cambridge in 2006. I have since been a Thomas Nevile Research Fellow at Magdalene College Cambridge (2006-2008), a Juniorprofessor at the University of Munich (2008-2010) and an Assistant Professor at ETH Zurich (2010-2014). In April 2014, I moved to the University of Copenhagen as a Professor. I have been awarded an ERC Starting Grant in 2013 and have been elected member of The Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters in 2016. I am a co-PI of the Villum Centre of Excellence for the Mathematics of Quantum Theory (QMATH).
