Adela Marian

Adela Marian received her Ph.D. in 2005 from the University of Colorado at Boulder, where she worked on cold-atom spectroscopy using a phase-stabilized femtosecond laser. She then moved to the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society in Berlin, where she is leading an experiment aiming to sympathetically cool molecules using ultracold atoms. She was a recipient of an Alexander von Humboldt Fellowhip in 2006, as well as of a Marie Curie Fellowship in 2007.
