Matthias Christandl is assistant professor for theoretical and mathematical physics at the University of Munich. He holds a Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge in England, where he was a Research Fellow prior to coming to Munich. It is the goal of his research to develop and solidify the mathematical and physical understanding of the new possibilities emerging from quantum information science. A main focus of his work is the study of correlations and entropies of quantum systems, but his work also includes proposals for new cryptographic protocols.
Complex systems of entangled quantum states can now be transformed into a simpler form.
