I am just a human being trying to gather knowledge in order to understand this fenomenal place that we call home and its fundamental laws. As a physicist I use experiment and mathematics to uncover the mysteries of the quantum world, controlling atomic interactions using electromagnetic fields, creating highly excited and interacting quantum states. Studying Rydberg atoms has been the core of my academic research.
