Meera Parish  Associate Professor

My research is broadly focussed on the theory of strongly correlated phenomena in ultracold atomic gases and electron systems. In particular, I am interested in superconductivity and superfluidity, low-dimensional systems and dimensional crossovers, and magnetotransport.

 

 

Jesper Levinsen  ARC Future Fellow 

My research focusses on strongly interacting quantum systems on the interface between condensed matter physics and quantum gases. I work on aspects of superfluidity, impurities in degenerate quantum gases, few-body physics, and low-dimensional systems. A particular subject that fascinates me is the interplay between few- and many-body physics in strongly correlated systems.

 

 

Shimpei Endo – Postdoctoral research fellow

My primary research interests are directed toward understanding universal few-body and many-body physics in a strongly interacting quantum systems, in particular in ultra-cold quantum gases. Various exotic quantum phenomena have been explored recently in the ultra-cold quantum gases with high controllability, and I am theoretically studying universal behaviors in these systems, such as Efimov physics, superfluidity.

Emma Laird – PhD student

I am from Townsville, North Queensland, and I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Melbourne, before doing Honours, and now a PhD, with Jesper at Monash University.  In my Honours year, I undertook a theory project on few-body SU(N) Fermi gases in one dimension, which have been realized recently in experiments using 173Yb.  My PhD is on strongly-correlated Fermi gases, and I have started by studying the newly observed “orbital” Feshbach resonance.

 

 

Tom Kirk – PhD student (visiting from UCL)

I’m a PhD student from University College London visiting the Monash Theory of Quantum Matter group. Together, we work on few-body and many-body problems in the context of ultra-cold atomic gases. We are particularly interested in three-body physics and the possibility of three-body correlations in many-body systems. We often consider altering the dimensionality of systems in order to facilitate interesting effects.
