Dominik is a theoretical quantum physicist working at the interface between computer science, mathematics and physics. In his research, he explores the potential of quantum computing devices with a focus on sampling tasks. To help improve quantum devices, he develops and applies resource-efficient protocols for characterizing and verifying their functioning. His research questions concern both the foundations of physics and computing and practical computational methods for the simulation of quantum system such as Monte Carlo sampling algorithms. Dominik received his Ph.D. from Freie Universität Berlin in 2020, and was a postdoc at Freie Universität before joining QuICS.
