Sketch of CV, and
some fun stuff 

I am interested in the conceptual and mathematical foundations of quantum theory.
Anything, in which the structure of quantum mechanics plays a nontrivial role, really.
In recent years this has mostly been quantum information theory, but also quantum statistical mechanics and the theory of time in quantum mechanics. I like problems which are conceptually interesting and allow an answer in the form of a nontrivial theorem. As a mathematical physicist I also try to answer questions at their appropriate level of generality. Generally observed features of the theory, like, e.g., the approach of equilibrium in macroscopic systems, deserve a general explanation don't they?
