Teaching and learning

Professor Kheruntsyan teaches 2nd, 3rd and 4th year physics, particularly in quantum physics, statistical mechanics, and condensed matter physics.

Researcher biography

Professor Kheruntsyan graduated from the Yerevan State University (Armenia, former Soviet Union) in 1988, and received PhD degree in Physics from the Institute for Physical Research of the Armenian Academy of Science in 1993. In 1996, he moved to the University of Queensland to work as a postdoctoral research associate and was subsequently awarded a UQ Postdoctoral Research Fellowship. Following this, he held positions of Lecturer, ARC Senior Research Fellow, Chief Investigator in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Quantum-Atom Optics (2003-2010), ARC Future Fellow (2010-2014), Associate Professor (2015-2017), and is currently Professor in theoretical physics in the School of Mathematics and Physics (SMP).

His primary research interests are in the area of degenerate quantum gases and atom optics, including equilibrium and nonequilibrium properties of Bose-Einstein condensates, ultracold molecules, low-dimensional systems, and fundamental tests of quantum mechanics with massive particles.
