Simon’s Short Profile
Simon Baier was born on 6th February 1988 in Innsbruck, Austria. In 2007 he started his study in physics at the University of Innsbruck, where he finished his Master thesis in the Erbium group of Francesca in 2012. After a few months of working in the research of thin-film solar panels he began his Phd in the same team 2013, continuing the research he started during his Master thesis. He is also involved in teaching classes for the physics program of the University of Innsbruck. In early 2018 he will finish his Phd thesis, with the aim of a Postdoc abroad.
Simon’s present research interests range from ultracold fermionic atoms, over bosonic molecules up to ultracold gases in optical lattices, with a special focus on the dipole-dipole interaction between the particles.
