New postdoc - Raijumon Puthumpally Joseph

Raijumon Puthumpally Joseph (Raiju Joseph) joins the strong-field and attosecond physics group lead by Prof. Lars Bojer Madsen in September 2020.

Raiju will be funded for 2 years by his own Marie Curie scholarship, to work on the theoretical development of the imaging technique of ultrafast dynamics, using so-called laser-induced electron diffraction. 

Raiju completed his Masters (MSc) in theoretical physics from Cochin University, India in 2012, and joined the group of Prf. Eric Charron, Université Paris Sud (Paris Saclay) as a doctoral student in Marie Curie-ITN.  During his PhD he studied the strong field dynamics and cooperative effects in atoms and molecules. Immediately after the completion of his PhD in 2016, he joined the team of Prof. Dominique Sugny, Université de Bourgogne, France as a postdoctoral researcher in a French-German (ANR-DFG) project, on the optimal control of non-Markovian dynamics of open quantum systems. Since 2017, he has been a postdoc in Prof. David Tannor's group, Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel, where is studying the nonadiabatic transitions and ultrafast excitations using a home build semiclassical approach based on complex trajectories and final value representation of the coherent state operator.
