Daniel Malz

Postdoc at TUM


I am a theoretical physicist currently working at the TU Munich, as a postdoc in Johannes Knolle's CMT group.

I have broad interests in quantum optics and condensed matter physics, with a particular focus toward quantum technologies. To date, foci of my work have been periodically driven systems, cavity optomechanics, waveguide QED, and atomic arrays, with other works on double quantum dots, quantum computers, and topological magnetic insulators. A more detailed overview is on my Research page. All my publications can be found on arXiv, under Publications, or on google scholar.
