Prof. Síle Nic Chormaic
Professor, OIST Graduate University, Japan
Prof. Síle Nic Chormaic completed a BSc (Hons) in Experimental and Mathematical Physics and an MSc by Research in Atomic Physics at St. Patrick’s College (NUI) Ireland. In 1994, she received her doctorate degree in atomic interferometry from the Université Paris-Nord, France. Subsequently, she held postdoctoral positions at the University of Innsbruck, Austria and The University of Melbourne, Australia where she continued her research into the area of atomic interferometry In 1999, she joined the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics, Germany to work on the development of a cold Rb fountain for tests of the equivalence principle. She returned to her native Ireland in 2000 to take up a faculty post at the Cork Institute of Technology and established an independent research group in 2003 at the Tyndall National Institute, Ireland. In 2006, she transferred to University College Cork, while maintaining her links at Tyndall. Since 2012 she has been at OIST Graduate University where she leads the Light-Matter Interactions Unit. She concurrently holds an Honorary Professorship at the University of Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa.
