Dr Juan Polo
Dr Polo obtained his PhD in Physics in 2016 from the Autonomous University of Barcelona, Spain. After completing his thesis, he later received the Special Award for Doctoral Studies. Between 2016 and 2018 he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the LPMMC, in Grenoble, France. Afterwards, he joined the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology in Japan as a postdoctoral scholar, where he was awarded of the JSPS Kakenhi Grant as PI for financing his own research project.
His area of expertise are quantum systems, particularly ultracold atomic gases. He has investigated Bose gases using mean-field theories as well as strongly interacting systems in the continuum and in optical lattices, with a specific focus on finding new applications for quantum technologies.
