Welcome to our group homepage!

Our group studies collective phenomena in quantum many-body systems that arise from the intricate interplay of topology, strong correlations, and spin-orbit coupling. In our work we typically complement analytical approaches by a variety of sophisticated numerical techniques that exploit concepts from statistical physics, quantum information theory, and computer science.

We are embedded in a lively research environment at the Institute for Theoretical Physics in Cologne and part of a number of collaborative research and funding initiatives together with our experimental colleagues in the Physics Department.
