Ana Maria Rey


I graduated from Trinity College Dublin with a B.A in Theoretical Physics in 2020, writing my thesis on solving spin systems using bethe ansatz methods. I obtained my M.Sc in Theoretical Physics from Ludwig-Maximilians University and the Technical University of Munich in Germany.

Press Clipping: JILA and NIST Fellows Ana Maria Rey and James Thompson highlighted in "bnn"

A new bnn article delves into the recent research done by JILA and NIST Fellows Ana Maria Rey and James Thompson and their research groups who have achieved what was once thought to be a distant dream: the creation of an ultra-cold gas of strontium atoms exhibiting superconductor-like behavior. This achievement marks the first-ever observation of the long-anticipated third superconductivity phase, setting a new precedent in the field.



I received my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in physics at the Southern University of Science and Technology in Shenzhen, China, and subsequently joined the group as a Ph.D. student in 2023 Fall.


I earned my B.Sc and M.Sc in Austria at the University of Innsbruck. During my master's program, I visited the University of Gothenburg in Sweden, where I conducted research on neural network-inspired variational wavefunctions for quantum many-body problems under the guidance of Prof. Jan Budich.
