Principal Investigator grant awarded to Russell 


Russell has been awarded a Principal Investigator Project by the FWF to study binary dipolar supersolids.

Project description FWF

A Supersolid Disk 


In collaboration with the Ferlaino Group we have extended what is known to be possible with 2D supersolids by theoretically and experimentally creating round supersolids in disk-shaped traps.

ESQ Discovery Project awarded to Russell 

Russell has been awarded one of only six ESQ Discovery Project grants this year. The Discovery Programme supports new ideas and innovative research that go beyond traditional thinking. By developing novel finite-temperature methods to simulate dipolar condensates, Russell’s project endeavors to lay the theoretical groundwork required to create the first-ever bulk supersolids.
