Stuart Szigeti is a theoretical physicist, who completed his Ph.D. in February 2013 at The Australian National University (ANU). He has extensive experience in the fields of quantum optics and quantum-atom optics, with a particular focus on Bose-Einstein condensation, quantum control and atom interferometry. During his time at The ANU, Stuart worked closely with the experimental Quantum Sensors and Atom Laser Group in the Department of Quantum Science, in the capacity of theory and computational physics support. Stuart also has a keen interest in the philosophy and practice of education in physics.
Stuart received a Bachelor of Philosophy (Science) (Honours) from The ANU in 2008, for which he was awarded a University Medal in Theoretical Physics. In 2011 he completed the Graduate Certificate in Higher Education and in 2010 received the ANU Award for Excellence in Tutoring or Demonstrating.
