Michael Kastoryano joined the NBIA in September 2014 as a Carlsberg Postdoctoral fellow, and with a Villum Young Investigator startup grant. Michael earned his MsS in Physics at Yale University in 2008, and his PhD-degree in Quantum Information Theory at the Niels Bohr Institute in 2011, and has since held an Alexander von Humboldt post-doctoral appointment at the Dahlem Center at the Freie University Berlin. His arrival at the NBIA coincides with an upswing in activity in theoretical quantum information sciences at the university of Copenhagen, following the appointments of Mark Rudner (NBI) and Matthias Christandl (Math). Michael will be building a quantum information group at the NBIA as part of a larger operation to make Copenhagen a pole of excellence in this dynamic field of research. Michael Kastoryano works mainly on quantum information motivated questions in many body physics. Recently his focus has shifted towards topologically ordered systems and topological computation.
