Burak Şahinoğlu is a postdoc at IQIM-Caltech. Originally from Turkey, he obtained his M.S. from ETH Zürich and Ph.D. from the University of Vienna. His research interests spread from quantum information to low/high energy physics. In particular, he is interested in quantum marginal problem, classification of quantum phases and, lately, renormalization of physical theories. He approaches the problems by employing representation theory, category theory, quantum information and tensor networks, and he tries to find connections to topology and geometry.
