Gary Rozenman

GaryGary completed his B.Sc in Physics and Astronomy in 2014, as well as his M.Sc in experimental Condensed Matter Physics in 2017, at Tel Aviv University. His master’s research was completed under the supervision of Dr. Tal Schwartz, in which he investigated various phenomena of ultrafast chemical physics, and measured the spatial dynamics of Exciton-Polaritons in organic micro-cavities for the first time. Currently he is applying his rich experience in quantum mechanics and optics in hydrodynamics, in order to study quantum and optical analogies in gravity surface water-waves , both theoretically and experimentally.
