Welcome to my personal website

I am a physicist and am also very passionate about music.

Currently, I work as a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Prof. Dr. Daniel Loss at the Department of Physics of the University of Basel, where we conduct research in the fields of condensed matter theory and quantum computing.

Among my favorite styles of music are rock, pop, and funk. While guitar is my main instrument, I also play piano (or keyboard) and sing.
