Sandra Eibenberger-Arias receives ERC Starting Grant

Dr. Eibenberger-Arias, leads the Research Group of the “Controlled Molecules Group” in the Department of Molecular Physics at the Fritz-Haber-Institut der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft in Berlin. She holds a PhD in physics with distinction from the University of Vienna, Austria, where her doctoral research, conducted under the guidance of Prof. Dr. Markus Arndt, focused on quantum interference experiments with complex organic molecules.

As a postdoctoral research fellow at Harvard University’s Department of Physics in the group of Prof. John Doyle, from 2015 to 2018, Dr. Eibenberger-Arias delved into research on cold (chiral) molecules and spectroscopy in a cryogenic buffer gas cell. Her exceptional contributions to the field have earned her numerous awards and fellowships, including being an Elisabeth Schiemann fellow, receiving the ASciNA Young Scientist Award in 2017, and the Erwin Schrödinger Fellowship of the Austrian Science Fund.

The ERC (European Research Council) Starting Grant, part of the EU’s Horizon Europe program, has been awarded to Dr. Eibenberger-Arias for her project titled “Coherent Control of Chiral Molecules: COCOCIMO.”
