Research interests


My research is aimed at using Quantum Mechanics - the strange physics that governs the behaviour of atoms - to prototype new precision measurement devices that offer the promise of dramatically surpassing current technologies.  In the near future, applications can be expected in mineral exploration, and navigation systems both on earth and in space.
