Carrie Weidner obtained her PhD in 2018 in experimental cold atom physics from JILA at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where she developed a new way of building a quantum sensor using interfering ultracold atoms. She then moved to Denmark, where she spent three years as a postdoctoral researcher at Aarhus University before being promoted to assistant professor. Her work in Aarhus is based on quantum control and simulation, where she works to develop the technology needed to use quantum systems to study difficult problems in physics and elsewhere in nature. Carrie is also interested in quantum education research and material development. As a part of ScienceAtHome, she has worked to help develop a number of quantum tools and games for education and research purposes. Carrie loves physics and is always interested in discussing her work and learning more about the awesome research done in Denmark and around the world.
