Postdoc in quantum computing at the University of Konstanz, in the group of Guido Burkard.
My main research interest is the interface of many-body physics and quantum computation.

In 2022/2023 I organised the QAMBS seminar, a monthly seminar/journal club/reading group on Quantum Algorithms for Many Body Systems.
Preprint out on Line-graph qubit routing: from kagome to heavy-hex and more. (08/06/2023)
Our preprint on the "Variational quantum eigensolver for the Heisenberg antiferromagnet on the kagome lattice" is published in Phys. Rev. B 106, 214429 (2022). This work has been picked up by various news and science websites, such as engeneers online, emerce, pcactive, and those of QuSoft and the CWI. (01/02/2023)
