Christine Muschik joined the Institute for Quantum Computing November 1, 2017 as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy.
In Munich, Germany, Muschik studied physics at the Ludwig-Maximillians-Universität. She completed her dissertation, “Quantum information processing with atoms and photons”, at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics under the supervision of J. Ignacio Cirac.
Her theoretical research in quantum optics earned her the Alexander von Humboldt postdoctoral fellowship at ICFO – The Institute of Photonic Sciences in Castelldefels, Barcelona. At ICFO, Christine was part of Maciej Lewenstein’s quantum optics theory group.
Muschik continued her postdoctoral research at IQOQI – Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information in Innsbruck, Austria, with Peter Zoller. She joins the University of Waterloo from the Institute of Theoretical Physics, University of Innsbruck where she is a University Assistant.
