Dr. Mark Baker
Postdoctoral Research fellow
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.
