Dr. Klaasjan van Druten teaches Electrodynamics at AUC. He is also a lecturer and researcher at the University of Amsterdam. He studied physics at Leiden University, and obtained his PhD in physics for work at the FOM Institute Amolf in Amsterdam. Subsequently, he was a postdoctoral researcher at MIT, in the group of Wolfgang Ketterle. Returning to The Netherlands, he worked at Leiden University and at Delft University of Technology before returning to Amsterdam and the field of ultracold atoms. His current research interests center around quantum simulation and quantum information with ultracold atoms, in particular using atom chips and Rydberg-mediated interactions.
