We are delighted to welcome six new research students, who will soon start working at CTAMOP under support from the Deprtment of Employment and Learning and the EPSRC Doctoral Training Account granted to Queen’s. Andrew Swann will work with Dr. Gleb Gribakin on the fascinating physics of positron, while Michael Turkington will engage in a challenging project at the border of atomic physics and astrophysics under the supervsion of CTAMOP member Dr. Francesca Shearer and Prof. Francis Keenan, who work in the Astrophysics Research Centre. Connor Gallagher, Kenneth McAlpine, Sam McMillen and Brendan Reid will work on various aspects of quantum information processing, from the foundations of quantum mechanics to quantum communication, from ultra-cold atomic systems to quantum control. The whole CTAMOP wishes them al the best and lots of fun during the next few years!
