Welcome! I am a theoretical physicist (with experimental tendencies) in the School of Mathematics and Physics at the University of Queensland. I work with the UQ experimental quantum gas group, and together we are funded by the ARC Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems.
My recent ARC Discovery Project in collaboration with Dr Elena Ostrovskaya, leader of the Polariton BEC group at the Australian National University has been relinquished in 2017 in favour of generous funding from the new ARC Centre of Excellence in Future Low-Energy Electronics Technologies.
I am part of the broader Quantum Atom Optics theory group that formed part of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Quantum-Atom Optics, 2003-10. From 2010-14 I held an Australian Research Council Queen Elizabeth II Fellowship. In 2015 I was a Visiting Fellow at JILA, University of Colorado, Boulder, USA.
My particular area of interest is the nonequilibrium dynamics of superfluid Bose-Einstein condensates and other quantum gases. You can find an overview of my research interests on my "research" web page.

I am always
on the lookout for talented theoretical and
experimental postgraduate students from Australia, New
Zealand and further afield. The University of
Queensland offers scholarships, and we have funds
available for additional scholarships for exceptional
students. Please browse the research group web
pages for information about potential projects, or
contact me at the email above.
