Dr. Leuenberger received his PhD in Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics from the University of Basel, Switzerland. He spent three years as a postdoctoral associate in three different institutions (University of California San Diego, University of Iowa, University of Basel Switzerland) before joining UCF in 2005 as an assistant professor.
