Short Biography of Christophe Galland

I studied at Ecole Polytechnique in Paris (X2003) and received my PhD in 2010 from ETH Zürich for a thesis in solid-state quantum optics in the group of Prof. Ataç Imamoglu

As a postdoc at Los Alamos National Lab (USA) I studied the photophysics of individual nanocrystal quantum dots in the groups of Victor Klimov and Han Htoon.

Then, at the University of Delaware in the group of Michael Hochberg, I led several international projects in integrated quantum optics (see Collaborations)

From 2013 to 2016, I was working at EPFL in the group of Prof. Kippenberg in the field of quantum optomechanics with an Ambizione Fellowship of the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF).

My goal is to build a dynamic research group exploring the frontiers between the quantum and the classical world in nanoscale and mesoscale systems, using the tools of ultrafast spectroscopy and photon counting.
