Charlie Doret graduated from Williams College in 2002, double majoring in physics and mathematics. As an undergraduate he received the APS Apker Award for his thesis work measuring a Stark shift in atomic thallium under advisor Tiku Majumder. A student at Harvard since 2002, he presently works with Colin Connolly on a buffer-gas loaded Bose-condensate of metastable helium under the leadership of John Doyle
and Wolfgang Ketterle. In addition to his 4He* research, Charlie is also interested in tabletop-scale precision measurements and in teaching.
