Dr Paul Griffin

Senior Lecturer

Physics

Personal statement

I studied for a BSc Physics from the University of Limerick before receiving my PhD in 2005 from Durham University. I went on to become a postdoctoral fellow at Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, GA, from 2005-2007, after which I came to the University of Strathclyde to work in what was then the Photonics Group. I held a five-year Royal Society of Edinburgh Personal Research Fellowship starting in 2009. From 2010-2011 I was a Guest Researcher at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, MD, funded by an award from Marie Curie. In 2015 I was awarded a Chancellor's Fellowship at Strathclyde.

Research interests

My research work looks at experimental methods precision measurements in atomic physics, with an overall aim of developing next generation devices based on truly quantum technology. The main strands of my research are in laser-cooled atoms, atom interferometry, atomic clocks, and atomic magnetometry.
