Jonas Faltinath is a PhD student in the group of Prof. Tobias Knopp for Biomedical Imaging at the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf and the Hamburg University of Technology. During his study at the University of Hamburg, he worked mainly in the field of quantum optics resulting in the Master's thesis "Strongly Correlated Fermi Gases in Two and Three Dimensions" at the Institute of Laserphysics. For this thesis that presents a flexible set-up used for trapping and cooling of an ultracold quantum gas in different dimensions, he was awarded with the "Otto Stern-Preis". After that, he performed a one-year research stay at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland investigating an optical and non-destructive tomographic imaging modality on a quantum gas inside a high-finesse cavity. For his PhD, he is interested in the further development of magnetic particle imaging associated research.
