Biography

Professor Halina Rubinsztein-Dunlop is Director of the Quantum Science Laboratory at the University of Queensland. She is also a program manager of one of the scientific programs of the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems. She was Head of School from 2006-2013 and had previously served as Head of Physics.

Halina Rubinsztein-Dunlop obtained her PhD degree from the University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden. She also holds a Docent Degree from the same University. Halina moved to The University of Queensland in 1989 where she established a large research team actively involved in several areas of laser science. Her research interests are in laser physics, laser micromanipulation, atom optics, quantum science, linear and nonlinear high resolution laser spectroscopy, and nano-optics. She is well known as one of the originators of laser enhanced ionization spectroscopy, and for her work in laser micromanipulation and atom optics.

She has over 200 publications in international peer refereed journals as well as books and other media. She delivers frequent lectures to scientific organizations and societies worldwide. She is regularly interviewed by the mainstream media and has made many television and radio appearances.

She is a member of the Scientific Advisory Board of NTT Basic Research Laboratories, Japan, a member of the Editorial Boards of IOP Journal of Optics, Journal of Biophotonics, and a Member of the Advisory Board of Laser Beckmann Institute. She was the AIP 2003 Women in Physics Lecturer. She is a Fellow of SPIE and OSA.
