EPSRC Fellowship awarded to Christian Schilling

Posted on 5th May 2017 by Tristan Farrow

Christian Schilling has been awarded the prestigious EPSRC post-doctoral fellowship.

The award will enable him undertake a three-year research project exploring the role of the fermionic exchange symmetry from a quantum information theoretical viewpoint.

Project synopsis: The Pauli Exclusion Principle is one of the most fundamental laws in physics since it constrains the distribution of electrons in space. It is responsible for the stability of matter with stunning consequences in both the micro and the macro world. However, this 90 years old exclusion principle is incomplete and has only recently been completed by a mathematical breakthrough. We will explore how these exclusion principles change our understanding of... [More]
