Research line: Quantum simulation and few-qubit applications
Before joining in 2014 the quantum gases group at UvA to explore topological phenomena with ultracold alkaline earth atoms Siviloglou was working as postdoctoral fellow at MIT (2010-2014) where his team realized very strong artificial magnetic fields in a quantum gas of alkali atoms. Currently he is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellow in the team led by Prof. Schreck with the goal to explore topological phenomena in a quantum gas microscope with single atom resolution. Siviloglou got his PhD (2010) in photonics at the University of Central Florida.
The principal focus of his research is ultracold quantum gases with the goal to realize experimentally topological states under the influence of artificial magnetic fields, and to demonstrate quantum algorithms by manipulating quantum gases in optical lattices at the single atom level with a quantum gas microscope.
