Assistant Professor of Physics and Astronomy
Professor Wright is an experimental physicist who works with ultra-cold atomic gases. He holds a B.S. in physics from Brigham Young University (2000), and a Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Rochester (2009). Following his doctoral work, he was awarded a Research Associate Fellowship from the National Research Council, and joined the Joint Quantum Institute at the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the University of Maryland. Kevin will be joining the physics faculty at Dartmouth in January 2013.
