Thorsten Schumm is Assistant Professor at the TU-Wien (Vienna University of Technology). After studies in Berlin, Innsbruck, and Heidelberg, he received his Ph.D. in 2005, having carried out a bi-national thesis in Paris and Heidelberg. 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.
