Brief vita

Since March 2015, I am a postdoctoral fellow in theoretical condensed matter physics in the group of Subir Sachdev at Harvard University. From March 2013 until March 2015, I was a postdoctoral fellow in the group of Walter Metzner at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State research in Stuttgart. I earned my PhD (summa cum laude / with distinction) in March 2013, after being a PhD student in the group of Walter Metzner from January 2009 until March 2013. In December 2008, I graduated as a student of physics (Diplom) at Dresden University of Technology, Dresden.
When not doing physics, I enjoy playing basketball, cycling, swimming, hiking and skiing. I also like wining and dining, reading good books and playing chess.
