After my studies of physics at the University of Innsbruck I took up PhD studies in the group of Prof. Helmut Ritsch, where I have been working on collective effects in quantum optics since June 2011 and received my PhD in October 2016. In addition, my studies of the piano at the Conservatory of Tyrol have allowed me to participate in numerous musical projects over the years.
