Matthias graduated with a Diploma in Physics from the University of Stuttgart (Germany) and went on to obtain his PhD from the University of Cambridge, where he worked on trapped-ion quantum technologies, in particular on coupling atomic ions to miniature optical resonators. He then took up a postdoctoral position at the Centre for Quantum Technologies in Singapore. In 2015 he was awarded the Lee Kuan Yew Postdoctoral Fellowship for his work on quantum networks with single atoms and photons. Matthias returned to the UK in 2018. Before joining Marks & Clerk, Matthias led the hardware development team at Oxford Nanoimaging, where he developed super-resolution microscopes for life-science applications.
