About me


I hold a permanent position as a Privatdozent at the University of Regensburg within Prof. Franz Giessibl's Chair of Quantum Nanoscience. The title of Privatdozent means that I can supervise graduate students and hold lectures. 


I have supervised Bachelor, Masters, and Ph.D. students. I've taught at both the Bachelor and Masters level, and supervised lab courses. 

I have actively participated in larger grant applications, and have a number of grants as PI from the German Research Foundation (DFG). You can find a full list of articles I have published in peer-reviewed journals on my ORCID site.
