Research interests

Our theoretical study of quantum fluids — in particular Bose-Einstein condensation — is being used to further our understanding and use of novel quantum technologies powered by cold atoms. In particular, our research interests include:
  • the theoretical study of atom interferometry for dark matter detection;
  • modelling bright matter-wave solitons as a candidate for atom interferometry;
  • modelling ultra-precise and portable atomtronic devices (e.g., the rotation sensor) and
  • modelling the effects of finite temperature and non-equilibrium dynamics for atomtronics.
We are a part of the Joint Quantum Centre Durham–Newcastle, and we collaborate with researchers at Newcastle University.
