JILA Fellow Ana Maria Rey named finalist for Blavatnik Award for Young Scientists

June 6, 2019

Rey’s research in atomic and molecular physics explores some of the most challenging and fundamental problems in physics. Working with experimentalists, her innovative theoretical work led to the development of the world’s most accurate atomic clocks. Rey has also developed and tested theories that will enable the construction of a quantum computer.
