Simon Cornish is a Professor in the Department of Physics at Durham University and a member of the Joint Quantum Centre Durham-Newcastle. He was educated at Oxford University where he received his Ph.D.in experimental atomic physics in 1998. He developed an interest in ultracold atoms while he was a Lindemann Fellow at the University of Colorado where he undertook pioneering experiments on Bose-Einstein condensation with tunable interactions. His current research interests include the study of bright matter-wave solitons, quantum degenerate mixtures, and the formation of ultracold heteronuclear molecules for applications in quantum simulation.
