Christopher Bauerle has received his B.S. degree from the Technical University of Karlsruhe, Germany, the M.S. degree from the University of Massachusetts, USA, and his Ph.D. degree in 1996 (summa cum laude) from the University Joseph Fourier, Grenoble, France. During his Ph.D. studies, he worked in the field of helium physics, where he made significant contributions to the field of two-dimensional magnetism as well to the field of symmetry-breaking phase transition using ultracold superfluid 3He as a cosmology laboratory. From 1996 to 1998, he was a Research Fellow at the University of Tsukuba and at the University of Tokyo, Japan, where he worked in the field of scanning tunneling microscopy at very low temperatures. In 1998, he joined the Low Temperature Laboratory in Grenoble (CRTBT) as a Permanent CNRS Researcher. Since 2010, he works as a Senior Scientist and the Director of Research at the Institut Neel–CNRS, Grenoble, France, where he currently leads a group on quantum transport in nanostructures. His research focuses on mesoscopic physics, in particular quantum transport and phase coherence phenomena at very low temperature including nanomechanics using diamond. He is a Fulbright Fellow and an EC-JSPS Fellow, and he received the Young Researcher Award from the French Ministry of Science in 2002.
