After completing my Master’s at the Institute of Theoretical Physics in University of Ulm, I joined GIQ for the first time in 2016 as a ‘la Caixa’ doctoral fellow. In 2019, during the last months of my PhD, I had the chance of enjoying a 3-month research stay in Queen’s University Belfast, which bolstered my love for research. That’s why I didn’t hesitate to rejoin GIQ as a postdoc in 2020, where I’m currently working on a project about the certification of quantum simulators. Beyond simulators, my research interests range from quantum coherence, quantum resource theories and open quantum systems, to quantum thermodynamics. Complementary to physics, I write poetry and don’t miss any local event related to literature/philosophy.
