In 2002 I joined the Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of Zurich. The ITP was host to Albert Einstein who obtained his PhD here in 1905 and Erwin Schroedinger (1921-1927) who developed the mathematical framework behind quantum mechanics in Zurich. I was institute director from 2007-2011. In 2013 the University decided that computational science should become a priority area and my colleagues and I established the new Institute for Computational Science (ICS). I am now director of the Centre for Theoretical Astrophysics and Cosmology (CTAC) within the ICS.
