In Titus’ PhD (2013, ETH Zurich and Paul Scherrer Institute), he worked on topological states with anyonic excitations, so-called fractional Chern insulators. From 2013 until 2016 he was Postdoctoral Fellow at the Princeton Center for Theoretical Science, USA. Since 2016 Titus is Professor for theoretical condensed matter physics at the University or Zurich. He won the following awards: Distinction from ETH and Swiss Physical Society PhD Prize (2013), Klung-Wilhelmy Prize (2019).
