Research Agenda: My work currently focusses on implementations of quantum communication and quantum information science using engineered solid-state quantum light sources, e.g. epitaxial semiconductor quantum dots but also novel materials.

Short Bio: I received the Diploma degree in physics from the Julius-Maximilians-Universität (JMU) Würzburg, Germany, in 2009, where I also started my PhD research in the field of non-classical light generation. In 2012 I joined Technical University of Berlin (TU Berlin) as Research Associate. In parallel I received the PhD in physics from JMU Würzburg, Germany, in 2014. Afterwards I worked as postdoctoral researcher at TU Berlin, leading the spectroscopy division in the ‘Optoelectronics and Quantum Devices’ group. In 2018 I was awarded with a Junior Research Group Grant (project QuSecure) by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) with a total budget of 2.2 million €. Since then, I am head of the group ‘Quantum Communication Systems’ at the Institute of Solid States Physics of TU Berlin. I had several research visits to the Ludwigs-Maximilians-University Munich and the Technion in Haifa, Israel. I received the Karl-Scheel-Prize 2020 of the Physical Society in Berlin (PGzB).
