Born and raised in Ger­many, Ulrich Mohrhoff joined the Sri Aurobindo Inter­na­tional Centre of Edu­ca­tion (SAICE), Pondicherry (India), as an under­grad­uate stu­dent in 1972.

From 1974 to 1978 he studied physics at the Uni­ver­sity of Göt­tingen, Ger­many, and at the Indian Insti­tute of Sci­ence in Ban­ga­lore (India). Since his set­tling in Pondicherry in 1978 he pur­sues inde­pen­dent research in the foun­da­tions of physics and at the inter­face of physics and Indian philosophy/​psychology. In 1996 he began pub­lishing orig­inal research in var­ious peer-​​reviewed jour­nals (see his pub­li­ca­tions and pre­sen­ta­tions).

Since 2000 he teaches a philo­soph­i­cally ori­ented course of con­tem­po­rary physics, which is offered to higher sec­ondary and under­grad­uate stu­dents at the SAICE. His text­book (The World According to Quantum Mechanics: Why the Laws of Physics Make Perfect Sense After All, published by World Scientific and due to be released shortly), is based largely on the mate­rial he devel­oped for this course. He maintains two blogs, This Quantum World and An Aurobindonian in Quantumland.
