MJM’s Short Profilemanfred-copy

Manfred Mark was born on 13th September in Innsbruck, Austria. After receiving Matura/A-levels he was working four year as a business consultant in Innsbruck and Vienna. In 2002 he started his study in physics in Innsbruck, doing his diploma thesis and afterwards his PhD thesis in the ultracold quantum gases group of Hanns-Christoph Nägerl. After receiving his PhD in 2012, he did a 2 1/2 year PostDoc time in the same group. He changed 2015 as Senior Scientist to the group of Francesca.
Manfred’s research interests are based on ultracold atomic and molecular gases with a special focus on quantum gases in optical lattices.
