Biographical Information

Dominik Zumbühl, born 1974 in Zürich, received a diploma in physics in 1998 from ETH Zürich, where he completed a diploma thesis in the Ultrafast Laser Physics Group of Prof. Ursula Keller. Subsequently, he started working on his doctorate in mesoscopic physics at Stanford University in the lab of Prof. Charles Marcus. In 2000, Dominik relocated together with Dr. Marcus's group to Harvard University, where, in 2004, he obtained a Ph. D. with the title "Coherence and Spin in GaAs Quantum Dots". He then joined the group of Prof. Marc Kastner at MIT as a postdoctoral fellow.

In April 2006, Dominik was appointed as a tenure track assistant professor in the Department of Physics at University of Basel, where he has set up the Quantum Coherence Laboratory performing quantum transport experiments. In 2008, he has received one of the prestigious Starting Grants of the European Research Council (ERC) in the first ERC call, where only 3% of proposals were funded (more...). In April 2012, Dominik was awarded tenure and was promoted to associate professor (UniNews).

Dominik enjoys traveling, singing, cooking, fine dining and playing piano with his kids.
