Research Overview

Cold atom systems represent an ideal platform to study aspects of quantum mechanics. My research focuses on a Bose-Einstein condensate in which all the boson atoms are condensed into the lowest momentum state.

My research interests include:

  • Topological defects and phase profiles of single and multi-component Bose-Einstein condensates;
  • Soliton and vortex dynamics;
  • Interfacial dynamics;
  • Instabilities in multi-component condensates;
  • Spin-oribt-coupled systems;
  • Supersolids through the Gross-Pitaevskii formalism.
