Hi, I am Henrik Wilming and I do quantum physics.

Research interest

I am interested both in abstract quantum information theory and in using ideas and tools from (quantum) information theory to obtain interesting and rigorous results in other areas, in particular in the theory of quantum many-body systems and statistical physics. I am currently a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Tobias Osborne and Reinhard Werner at Leibniz University Hannover. Previously, I was a researcher in the quantum information theory group of Renato Renner at ETH Zurich. I did my PhD in Jens Eisert's group at FU Berlin.

I am always happy to receive e-mails regarding my work, so please feel invited to send any questions or comments. My CV is available on request.

Most of my publications can be found on the arXiv.
