Amelle Zair

I am head of Attophysics laboratory at King's College London. Previously I optained my MSc in laser matter interaction from Orsay University & Ecole Polytechnique. I obtained my PhD degree in 2006 awarded with the highest distinction on 'Production, characterisation of attosecond pulses' where I explored the ellipticity gating technique for isolated attosecond pulse. I undertook postdoctoral studies at ETH Zurich, USAL and Imperial College London.
In 2011, I was offered both an EPSRC CAF and URF fellowship and since a choice needed to be made I accepted the EPSRC CAF and build my first group at Imperial College London.
In 2017, I was offered a position at King's College London to lead a the Attosecond Physics group and to lecture advanced photonics to UG and PG.
In my group we value talent from a diverse point of view as we believe it is a strength.
In the Physics Department at King's College London, I am also PGT and PGR admission tutor and I am chair of Diveristy and equality departmental committee since 2019. We are currently JUNO champion from IOP and Athena Swan SILVER award winner.
