Barbara Kraus’ main research interests are fundamental problems within Quantum Information Theory. We are working on the development of new theoretical tools which are useful the investigation of quantum many-body systems. One of the aims is the characterization of the entanglement and complexity properties of multipartite systems. We are investigating new applications of multipartite entanglement and novel tools for the generation and manipulation of multipartite entangled states in specific experimental set-ups, like trapped ions or atoms in optical lattices.
