After a short postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Toronto he joined the group of J. Schmiedmayer in Vienna as a University Assistant, working with ultracold atomic quantum gases, focusing on low-dimensional systems and matter-wave interferometry. In 2010 he started his own research group on quantum metrology, aiming to realize novel atomic clock schemes based on nuclear transitions.
