Anamika joined us from the Cochin University of Science and Technology South Kalamassery in Kerala, India. She went on to do her master in the Quantum Information with Cold Atoms and Non-classical Light Group of Morgan Mitchel at the ICFO – The Institute of Photonic Sciences, Barcelona, Spain. She is now working on her PhD at the Technical University of Denmark in collaboration with the laser manufacturer NKT Photonics. She will be part of the EU project ETN-MEFISTA (Multi-scale fibre-based optical frequency combs: science, technology and applications).

Mikis is a Master Student on the Space Optics Project.
Mikis was born in Chania, in 1993. He did his undergraduate studies in Physics science at the Department of Physics of the University of Crete (2011-2015). He continues his studies doing a PhD on bio-imaging.
Georgos Vasilakis is joining us for a couple of weeks as a visiting scientist. He is currently a postdoc in the group of Eugene Polzik.
day11/2014 – 07/2017 : postdoc on BEC 1 and Space Optics
Kostas got his Bachelor’s Degree in Physics at the Department of Physics, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, where he majored on Solid State Physics and Optics.
He then started his PhD in 2009 at the Centre for Quantum Photonics, University of Bristol, under the supervision of Prof. Jeremy O’Brien, where he did experimental research on integrated quantum photonics for quantum information and quantum computation science. His main focus was on implementation of multi-photon integrated quantum walks, with dissertation titled: Integrated Photonic Continuous-Time Quantum Walks.
He then did a short post-doc in 2014 still with Prof. Jeremy O’Brien at the Centre for Quantum Photonics, working in a collaboration with Prof. Axel Kuhn’s Atom-Photon Connection group at Oxford University. He was also a visiting post-doctoral research assistant (early 2015) at the Atom-Photon Connection group, Oxford University. The scope of the collaboration was to use a deterministic single photon source (single Rb87 atoms in a cavity) to perform quantum logic experiments on integrated photonic devices.
In November 2014 he joined the Cretan Matter-Waves / Bose-Einstein Condensation group, I.E.S.L., FO.R.T.H. in Heraklion, Crete, Greece, where he is since working as a post-doctoral researcher. His main project is the implementation of a fully-guided, ring-shaped, Sagnac-type atom-interferometer using time-averaged adiabatic potentials (TAAPs) and Rb87 Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs).
In summer 2017, Kostas joined the cold atoms group of Thomas Fernholz at Nottingham University.
