Congratulations to Dr Chris Perrella!

Dr Chris Perrella's (University of Adelaide) research focuses on finding fundamental optics solutions to solve real-world challenges. Two key projects he has led that exemplify his commitment to real-world impact are the Rubidium Two-Photon Optical Clock, which out-performs the best commercially available clocks of similar size, weight, and power, and high-performance quantum magnetometers. He mentored several Ph.D. students and early-career researchers, is champion for inclusion and diversity, and organised multiple public outreach events. Chris raised more than $5M in research funding and was awarded the 2023 South Australian Tall Poppy Award.
