Dr. Mark Baker
Dr Mark Baker, from Brisbane, undertook his BSc at UQ, followed by his Honours year at UWA in Perth. He returned to Brisbane in 2001 where he completed a PhD at Griffith University, working on a beamline atom lithography system with metastable states of neon and argon. In 2006 Dr Baker started a postdoc at IESL-FORTH in Heraklion, Greece on the island of Crete. There he worked on a new Bose-Einstein condensation experiment to investigate time-averaged adiabatic potentials (TAAP) using RF dressed states in a magnetic trap (www.bec.gr). In 2010 he returned to Brisbane to work in the experimental BEC group at UQ. He has been building the painted potentials apparatus.
