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

Research interest

I am a researcher in the group of Renato Renner @ ETH Zurich. I am interested in applying ideas from quantum information theory to thermodynamics and the theory of quantum many-body systems. I mostly focus on relating quantum mechanics to the foundations of statistical mechanics and thermodynamics. Recently, I also became interested in the holographic approach to quantum gravity and its relation to quantum information theory.

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.
