My name is Christian and I’m a Design Engineer at ASML, one of the largest manufacturer of chip-making equipment. I studied at the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg and hold a PhD in Physics from the University of Stuttgart. During my PostDoc at Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf I did research on self-organization and structure of active soft and granular matter.
