Georgios Vasilakis is the leader of Quantum Magnetometry lab, which aims to harness the quantum interface between light and atomic ensembles in order to perform quantum enhanced magnetometry.
Before founding the new lab he was a postdoctoral researcher at the BEC and Mattewaves Group with Dr. Wolf von Klitzing at FORTH-IESL, and in the Quantop Group of Eugene Polzik at Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen. He got his Ph.D. from Princeton University, where he completed his thesis "Precision Measurements of Spin Interactions with High Density Atomic Vapors" under the supervision of Michael Romalis.
