Overview

Dr Neely completed his BS in Physics and Mathematics at the University of Oregon, USA. He then attended the University of Arizona's College of Optical Sciences. In Arizona, he worked on experiments investigating superfluid vortices and superfluid turbulence in Bose-Einstein Condensates (BECs), in the group of Professor Brian Anderson. On completing his PhD, he was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Boulder, Colorado, where he investigated the application of frequency combs to mid-infrared spectroscopy in the group of Dr Scott Diddams.

At the University of Queensland, he leads an experimental group focused on ultracold gases and BECs. He is also an Associate Investigator in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems (EQUS).

Dr Neely’s research interests include superfluid turbulence (the focus of his Future Fellowship), atomtronics, quantum thermodynamics, and matter-wave based inertial sensing.

The Bose-Einstein condensation lab has openings for honours, PhD, and undergraduate projects. Please contact Dr Neely (t.neely@uq.edu.au) regarding current opportunities
