Daniel Steck

Daniel Steck received his Bachelor's degree in Physics and Mathematics from the University of Dayton in 1995. The following fall, he joined the research group of Prof. Mark Raizen in the Department of Physics at The University of Texas at Austin to perform his experimental dissertation research on quantum nonlinear dynamics of atoms in optical lattices. He was then a Postdoctoral Fellow from 2001-2004 at Los Alamos National Laboratory, where he performed theoretical research on quantum and cold-atom systems, particularly in the area of continuous quantum measurement and quantum feedback control. He is now an Associate Professor at the University of Oregon and Oregon Center for Optics, where he studies quantum measurement and control with ultracold atoms.
