Dr. Kyle Hardman is currently a postdoctoral fellow in the Atomlaser and Quantum Sensing Group at the Australian National University. He received in BSc and MSc from the University of Nevada, Reno in 2008 and 2011 respectively. His research during this time focused on ECDL laser design, classical cryogenic fridge design, and gas phase collision and reaction dynamics of atomic and diatomic systems at cryogenic temperatures. In 2012 Kyle moved to The Australian National University where he completed his Phd in atomic physics in 2016. His Phd research focused on precision measurements of gravity, gravity gradients, and magnetic field gradients utilizing atom-interferometry with a Bose-Einstein condensate. Kyle’s postdoctoral work has focused around novel techniques for improving atom-interferometry based sensors for applications in field deployment. This includes compact-multi-axis sensing, unique state readout techniques, and interferometry with squeezed states.
