I am currently a postdoctoral scholar in the physics department at Stanford University. My work in Prof. Chu's research group focuses on the development of novel nanoscale imaging technologies for probing biological system. Prior to joining Steven Chu I received my graduate education in physics from Harvard University. My Ph.D. dissertation, which I completed in the group of Prof. Lukin, is on Coherent control of diamond defects for quantum information science and quantum sensing. Before moving to Harvard I completed my undergraduate education in physics at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), where I did my master project with Prof. Wallraff on superconducting qubits.
I am thankful for receiving funding from the Fulbright Science and Technology Award (US State Department), the Swiss National Foundation (SNF), the Harvard Merit Fellowship and the Interdisciplinary Neuroscience Award (Stanford Neuroscience Institute). I am also a member of the Swiss National Academic Foundation (Schweizerische Studienstiftung) and I received the highest award at the National Science Contest (Jugend forscht) for my research project on short periodic air pressure variations.
