Christian joined Arizona State University as an assistant professor in the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering in January 2022. Prior to joining ASU he was a lecturer and an associate research scholar at Princeton University. Previously, he completed his PhD in applied mathematics at Aberystwyth University in 2016, where he focused on the control of open and noisy quantum systems. He completed his master’s degree equivalent in theoretical physics from Saarland University in 2012, where he studied quantum optical systems. 

Christian’s current research centers on using tools from control theory to advance quantum information science. His work targets applications such as the design of robust and efficient controls for quantum computing, and the development of quantum algorithms for optimization and machine learning tasks.
