Nick Hutzler received his bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Caltech and his Ph.D. in physics at Harvard, working on the ACME eEDM experiment. He then did postdoctoral research in ultracold atoms and molecules at the Harvard/MIT Center for Ultracold Atoms (CUA). He is currently an Assistant Professor at Caltech, where he is starting an experimental laboratory that will develop techniques to control cold molecules for a variety of applications, in particular, precision measurement searches for physics beyond the standard model.
