Emily Ahern is a PhD candidate at the University of Adelaide, working on a compact optical clock for small satellite applications. Her research is focused on increasing the stability of the clock by investigating novel light-atom interaction schemes. This research finds uses in global positioning systems and future space timing applications, such as synchronising constellations of small satellites.
Emily completed her Bachelor of Science with majors in Experimental and Theoretical Physics (Hons.) at University of Adelaide, developing a novel dual-wavelength acousto-optically tuned laser.
