Morten received his Ph.D. in 2015 from Center for Quantum Devices at University of Copenhagen. There, he worked on experimental and theoretical approaches to topological quantum systems, with a particular focus on 2D geometries for superconductor/semiconductor-hybrid systems as a platform for scalable topological qubits. After spending most of 2016 as a postdoc in the same group, Morten then joined MIT to work on superconducting transmon-based approaches to quantum error correction in multiple logical qubits embedded in 3D geometries.

Morten is a recipient of the Carlsberg Foundation international postdoc fellowship.
