Professor Christoph Wälti

Research interests

Christoph Wälti is Professor of Bionanotechnology in the School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering. His research interests lie in molecular nanotechnology with particular focus on self-assembly applications and the interface between biology and semiconductors.

Christoph graduated from ETH Zürich, Switzerland, with an MSc in Physics in 1995 and received his PhD in 2000 from the Laboratory of Solid State Physics of the same institution with a thesis on the study of the symmetry of the order parameter in the heavy-electron superconductor UBe13. In 2001 he was awarded a Swiss Marie-Curie Fellowship to work on the self-assembly of molecular complexes using DNA at the Cavendish Laboratory of the University of Cambridge.
