Valentin Walther

ITAMP Postdoctoral Fellow

Valentin obtained his Master degree from Stony Brook University on a Fulbright exchange under the supervision of Prof. Ken Dill in the field of nonequilibrium statistical mechanics. He then continued on a PhD with Prof. Thomas Pohl at the Max-Planck-Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems (Dresden, Germany) and at Aarhus University (Denmark) with a focus on Rydberg interactions of semiconductor excitons (summa cum laude). Since November 2019, Valentin has been an ITAMP postdoctoral fellow working at the interface of atomic, optical and condensed matter physics. Starting in January 2023, Valentin will be joining the faculty at Purdue University. To follow updates, click here.
