Christian Schönenberger is a full professor in experimental condensed matter physics at the University of Basel, where he leads the nanoelectronics group. He is also the acting director of the Swiss Nanoscience Institute (SNI) at the University of Basel. A particular focus of his research concerns hybrid quantum devices that are built on novel low-dimensional materials such as carbon nanotubes and graphene, for which the group has a research record since 1998. He is also a recipient of an ERC advanced research grant and a fellow of the American Physical Society.
