Dr Paul Griffin

Strathclyde Chancellor'S Fellow


Personal statement

Paul Griffin received his PhD in 2005 from Durham University. He went on to become a postdoctoral fellow at Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, USA from 2005-2007, after which he came to the University of Strathclyde. He has held a Royal Society of Edinburgh personal research fellowship since 2009. From 2010-2011 he was a guest researcher at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, MD. His current reserach work is focused on experimental research in ultra-cold atomic physics, with an overall aim at developing next generation devices based on truly quantum technology.
