Peter joined the group of Waseem Bakr as a Dicke fellow in October 2015, where he is working on the ultracold lithium experiment (http://ultracold.princeton.edu/). The research focus is on high-resolution imaging of strongly interacting Fermi gases in two dimensions and optical lattices.
During his PhD and Postdoc work in the group of Immanuel Bloch in Munich he pushed forward Rydberg atoms to study long range interactions with ultracold atoms in optical lattices using quantum gas microscopy (see http://www.quantum-munich.de/people/person-details/pers/40/).
