Zoe Yan

Assistant Professor of Physics


Zoe Yan is an assistant professor at the James Franck Institute and the Dept. of Physics.  She studies experimental quantum many-body physics, using the platforms of ultracold atoms and molecules. Her experiments combine cutting-edge technologies in trapping and imaging quantum particles and tailoring their interactions to realize custom Hamiltonians.

Prior to joining UChicago, Zoe was a Dicke Postdoctoral Fellow at Princeton University.  She earned her Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and her B.S. with honors in physics from Stanford University
