Postdoctoral Fellow

Physics Department, University of Basel


I’m a dane, currently living in Basel, Switzerland. Here I’m a postdoc at the Quantum Electron Devices Group, lead by Prof. Andrea Hofmann. Our research focuses on Spin Qubits and hybrid semiconductor/superconductor devices in Ge/SiGe two dimensional hole gasses.

I got my PhD in 2023 from the University of British Columbia. My research was centered around the InAs/Aluminum interface, in perticular arrays of Josephson junctions.

I received my Masters degree in 2015 from University of Copenhagen, where I worked at the Center for Quantum Devices. During my Masters I studied the properties of Fractional Quantum Hall quasi-particles, using QPC’s.

Before entering the exciting world of academia, I trained to become an electrician. I received my certificate in 2009 and was at the same time awarded the bronze medal as well as the Massmannske medal of silver.
