I studied physics at the University of Konstanz, Germany, and at Cambridge University, UK. I got my MSc in physics (Diplomphysiker) from Konstanz in 1997 after doing a Master thesis supervised by Prof. M. Wilkens in the group of Prof. J. Mlynek. During my PhD (Dr. rer. nat.) with Prof. W. Zwerger in the group of Prof. H. Wagner at the University of Munich, Germany, I worked on nano-electro-mechanics.

From 2001, I worked on ultra-cold atoms as a postdoc in both the condensed matter theory group of Prof. M. Holthaus at the University of Oldenburg, Germany, and with Dr. Y. Castin in Prof. C. Cohen-Tannoudji's cold atom group at the ENS in Paris, France. After my Habilitation in 2008, I independently supervised students in the condensed matter theory group at the University of Oldenburg.

Since July 2011, I have been working in the group of Dr. Simon Gardiner at Durham University, UK.
