Latest news: Postdoctoral position available, closes 29 August 2016.
In 2016 I was awarded a new ARC Discovery Project in collaboration with Dr Elena Ostrovskaya, leader of the Polariton BEC group at the Australian National University, titled "Nonequilibrium states of polariton superfluids". We are currently recruiting a two year postdoctoral fellow to work on this topic - see the job advert here, and please contact me if you need more information.
Welcome! I am a theoretical physicist (with experimental tendencies) in the School of Mathematics and Physics at the University of Queensland. 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.
I also collaborate with the UQ experimental quantum gas group which forms part of the Centre for Engineered Quantum Systems.
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. In 2016 I have returned to full teaching duties.
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
