Sebastian Krinner joined our group in January 2016 with focus on digital and analog quantum simulation. In 2018, he won the prestigious Lopez-Loreta Prize, and with it a five-year research grant worth 1 million Euros. Previously, during his PhD in Tilmann Esslinger's group at ETH, he worked on quantum transport of ultracold atoms and quantum simulation of devices. For this work, he was awarded an ETH medal and the Chorafas prize 2015. He studied at University of Regensburg and University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, and spent one year as a research assistant in Laboratoire Kastler Brossel at ENS Paris.
