Since November 1, 2023, Jun.-Prof. Dr. Benedikt Fauseweh works in the area of theoretical solid-state physics at the Department of Physics.

The Department of Physics welcomes Jun.-Prof. Dr. Benedikt Fauseweh. After receiving his PhD from the Department of Physics at TU Dortmund University in 2016, Dr. Fauseweh worked at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart, the University of Tokyo, Los Alamos National Laboratory, and the German Aerospace Center in Cologne. On November 1, 2023, he started his junior professorship at our department. His research focuses on the theoretical description of non-equilibrium phenomena in many-body quantum systems using numerical methods as well as novel quantum simulation methods executed on modern quantum computers. Jun.-Prof. Fauseweh will collaborate intensively with the theoretical and experimental solid state physicists of the department as well as with other departments and institutes in the area of quantum computer applications.
