Simon studied physics at the University of Heidelberg and at Stony Brook University, NY. He graduated from Heidelberg in 2003 working in the group of M. Weidemüller. He received his PhD from the University of Mainz working in the group of Immanuel Bloch on ultracold bosons in optical lattices. Since 2007 he is a postdoc at Harvard University in the group of Markus Greiner.
