My research is about mesoscopic quantum structures in solid state physics. I am currently particulary interested in the application of topology and differential geometry, desribing the behavior of anyons and Majorana fermions in the realm of topological/adiabatic/holonomic quantum computing. In the recent years, I have worked on the Kondo effect for the quantum spin Hall insulator with special focus on the Kondo cloud as well as the influence of magnetic and superconducting materials on the edge states of three dimensional topological insulators and hybrid systems consisting of a trivial insulator and a topological insulator.
