Research interests

There are two approaches to investigate the fundamental properties of particles. At CERN the Large Hadron Collider accelerates the particles close to the speed of light and deduces their properties by smashing them together. The alternative approach is to cool the particles to temperatures near absolute zero. Specifically, in my research the particles are restricted to bosons and a given bosonic gas near absolute zero falls into a Bose-Einstein Condensate (BEC). I'm studying non-classical properties of this BEC in a double well potential.
