Christopher joined the group of Jason Petta in summer 2014, where he works on hybrid systems for quantum information processing and sensing applications. His research at Princeton University is geared towards the integration of spin and charge qubits into superconducting quantum circuits. The aim of interfacing coherent nanoscale qubits with microwave photons benefits from Christopher's prior experience with superconducting circuit technology. During his PhD and Postdoc work in the group of Andreas Wallraff at ETH Zurich he conducted experiments to detect and characterize itinerant microwave radiation at the single photon level. Before starting his PhD in 2009, Christopher has studied Physics and Music in Frankfurt/Main.
