Leticia Tarruell

Leticia Tarruell (Madrid, 1981) received her PhD in Physics in 2008 from the École Normale Supérieure in Paris, with a thesis on superfluidity in ultracold Fermi gases. As a postdoc at the ETH Zurich she worked on ultracold fermionic systems in optical lattices, in particular on artificial graphene and quantum magnetism. After holding a CNRS research position at Institut d’Optique in Bordeaux, she joined ICFO as a group leader in 2013. Her research is centered on the experimental simulation of condensed matter phenomena with ultracold quantum gases. Her group, which recently produced the first Bose-Einstein condensate in Spain, is working on the study of Bose-Bose mixtures with adjustable interactions. She is currently supervising 2 PhD theses, and has previously supervised 3 Master theses and 8 undergraduate research projects. Her publications have received > 1500 citations, and she was awarded the RSEF Prize for Experimental Physics 2015. More information about her research can be found at https://www.qge.icfo.es
