Dr Tyler Neely

Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Dr. Neely was born and educated in the United States, completing his B.S. in Physics and Mathematics at the University of Oregon. He then attended the University of Arizona's College of Optical Sciences. In Arizona, he worked on experiments investigating superfluid vortices and critical phenomena in Bose-Einstein Condensates (BEC), in the group of A/Prof Brian Anderson. On completing his Ph.D. he completed a postdoctoral study at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Boulder, Colorado, where he investigated the application of frequency combs to mid-infrared spectroscopy in the group of Dr. Scott Diddams.

At the University of Queensland, he is a member of the Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems (EQuS) where he is implementing a Potassium and Rubidium BEC machine to realise a quantum simulator.
