Open Student Projects

Topics change with my ongoing work and depend mostly on the interests and experience of the student. Therefore, it is always helpfull to contact me to discuss potential thesis topics.

Running Student Projects

  • Benjamin Decker: IDP on the influence of noise on Quantum Cellular Automata.
  • Julien Kollmann: Master's thesis on the use of Tree Tensor Networks for simulation of noisy qubits.
  • Madhav Menon: Bachelor's thesis on the HOPS Method for Tree Tensor Networks
