Research Agenda: The research of my group focuses on the theory and applications of engineered quantum systems, i.e., artificial mesoscopic systems whose dynamics are governed by the laws of quantum mechanics. Prominent examples of such mesoscopic systems are superconducting circuits, electro/optomechanical systems, and ultracold trapped atoms and ions. In addition to the study of fundamental aspects of these so-called quantum machines, we explore their `real-world' application for high-precision measurements, quantum-limited information processing, and quantum computation. Some of our current research focuses are on nonreciprocity as a resource for quantum information processing, and the development of novel theoretical concepts for quantum-limited amplifiers for quantum information processing with superconducting circuits.
Short Bio: Since 2018, I am an Emmy Noether research group leader at the Department of Theoretical Physics at the Free University Berlin in Germany. In 2012, I received my PhD in Physics from the Technical University Berlin in Germany. I spent my postdoctoral time at the Physics Department of McGill University in Montreal, and at the Department of Electrical Engineering at Princeton University.
