Contact details


Yannic is a PhD student in the Theory & Simulation of Condensed Matter group under supervision of Dr George Booth. The main focus of his research lies in the development, implementation, and application of numerical techniques to tackle the quantum many-body problem on a fundamental level. A central element to the developed approaches is the application of machine learning-based techniques in order to find accurate and compact descriptions of the quantum many-body wavefunction from which system properties can be derived.

Prior to joining King's, Yannic completed an MSc in Physics with Extended Research at Imperial College London. He also holds two BSc degrees, one in Physics and one in Computer Science, which he obtained at the Leibniz University Hannover.
