I'm currently (since September 2016) a PhD Student at the Institute of Physics (IoP) - Institute for Theoretical Physics Amsterdam (ITFA) at the University of Amsterdam under the supervision of Kareljan Schoutens and Florian Schreck. My main interest is in the area of quantum simulation with ultracold atomic gases in optical lattices. More specifically, the use of internal states to create a synthetic dimension. This technique can be used to create artificial gauge fields, leading to the simulation of theoretical lattice models with topological phases. My current focus is on future experiments with Strontium-87 in Florian Schreck's research group.

I'll be staying in Cambridge as a visitor of the TCM group for approximately two months in the spring of 2017.
