Born in 1970 and growing up in Bavaria (Germany), I went to high school (Karlsgymnasium) in Bad Reichenhall. In case you look for it on the map, it is close to Salzburg (Austria).
At the end of 1989 I moved to Munich and began my studies in physics at the Physics Department of the Technical University Munich. I finished my diploma thesis there at the Institute E13 in March 1996.
Following this I relocated to Düsseldorf to work at the Institute for Theoretical Physics at the Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf. In May 2000 I finished my PhD thesis in Düsseldorf and it was time for yet another move in July of that year.
This time I picked Birmingham (United Kingdom) and started to work in the Photonics Research Group at Aston University as a Contract Research Fellow.
Since September 2001 I've been a lecturer in Electronic Engineering here at Aston.
