Angel Rivas defended his PhD thesis

In February 2011, Angel Rivas successfully defended his PhD thesis. Angel started his PhD at the University of Hertfordshire and followed the big move to Ulm in 2009. You can read a nice introduction to Open Quantum Systems in a recent Springer publication that emerged from his thesis. The German students in the group make sure that traditions were kept and made him a gorgeous doctoral hat which included a heat bath and a chain mapping!

Angel is now a postdoc at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, working in the group led by Miguel Angel Martin-Delgado.
