Dr. Mark Mitchison appointed as Assistant Professor in Quantum Science
13 Jul 2021
We are delighted to share the news that Dr. Mark Mitchison will join the faculty at the School of Physics this September as an Assistant Professor. Mark is our second hire as part of the HEA-HCI pillar 3 of the human capital initiative which sees the establishment of a new MSc in Quantum Science and Technology at Trinity.
Mark obtained his undergraduate degree from the University of Leeds in 2011 and his PhD from Imperial College London in 2016. He then carried out postdoctoral research for two years at the University of Ulm, before joining Trinity College Dublin as a Research Fellow in 2018. His research aims to exploit open quantum systems as efficient sensors, energy-harvesting devices, and probes of complex many-body phenomena. This programme encompasses mesoscopic and atomic physics, quantum optics, non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, and quantum information theory.
