Dr. Dirk-André Deckert studied physics at the LMU Munich and as a DAAD fellow at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia. After his doctoral studies, funded by the BayEFG initiative, today Elite Network of Bavaria, he was awarded the doctoral degree in mathematics at the LMU Munich in 2010. His doctoral thesis "Electrodynamic Absorber Theory" comprises a mathematical and physical investigation of radiation reaction and electron-positron pair creation. The main fields of his research are Foundations of Physics, Quantum Electrodynamics, Many-Body Theory, Quantum Chemistry, Functional Differential Equations and Numerical Analysis. For one year Dr. Deckert conducted research as a post-doc fellow of the DAAD at the University of California Davis where he was later appointed as Arthur J Krener Assistant Professor for three years before commencing his work in the Elite Network of Bavaria in Munich.

Markus Nöth, MSc, studied physics and mathematics at the LMU Munich and received his bachelor degree in the summer of 2013. He pursued his passion for the foundations of physics by joining the master program "Theoretical and Mathematical Physics" of the Elite Network of Bavaria. In the course of this program he studied abroad for one semester in Japan at the Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology. Markus attained his master degree in January of 2016, his master thesis sheds new light on the renowned "Unruh effect" by introducing parallels between quantum and classical field theory. He joined the International Junior Research Group "Interaction between light and matter" as a PhD student in February of 2016. As a main project of research he investigates the existence of a mathematically rigorous description of quantum field theory of external fields, while additionally working as a teaching assistant.
