Michael Walter is an Assistant Professor at the University of Amsterdam and a Senior Researcher at QuSoft. He received a Diploma (2010) from the University of Göttingen and a PhD (2014) from ETH Zürich. Before joining QuSoft, he was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Stanford University.
His research ranges from quantum information and entanglement theory, to computational complexity and algorithms, to the frontiers of quantum gravity, combining insights from physics, mathematics, and computation. Very recently he was awarded an NWO Veni grant for developing theoretical tools to explore the connections between quantum entanglement and space-time.
