Dr Matt Reeves

Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Faculty of Science


Dr. Matt Reeves completed his PhD degree in theoretical physics from the University of Otago (New Zealand) in 2016. During his PhD, he worked in the field of vortex dynamics and turbulence in quantum fluids, under the supervision of Dr. Ashton Bradley.

In 2017, he joined the group of Prof. Matthew Davis at the University of Queensland as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow, studying far-from-equilibrium physics in exciton-polariton and atomic Bose-Einstein condensates.
