B. D. Esry

Brett Esry received his Ph.D. from JILA at the University of Colorado in 1997, working on many-body aspects of atomic Bose-Einstein condensates. For this work, he shared the 1999 DAMOP Thesis Prize. He followed his Ph.D. studies with a postdoctoral fellowship at the Institute for Theoretical Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. In the fall of 1999, he joined the Physics Department and the J. R. Macdonald Laboratory at Kansas State University and is currently a professor there. His current research efforts are divided between ultracold few-body problems and the interaction of intense, ultrashort laser pulses with atoms and molecules.
