Sven Rogge FRSN appointed as new UNSW Dean of Science

Scientia Professor Sven RoggeThe Council of the Royal Society of NSW extends its warmest congratulations to one of its Fellows, Scientia Professor Sven Rogge FRSN, who has just been named as the new Dean of Science at UNSW Sydney.  He takes over as Dean from another RSNSW Fellow, Professor Emma Johnston AO FRSN FAA FTSE, who is now the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) of the University of Sydney.

 Professor Rogge is an internationally recognised experimental condensed matter physicist who has made major research contributions in the underpinning technology of silicon-based quantum computation.  Previously, he served as the Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research) at UNSW and is currently the President of the Australian Institute of Physics.

Prof. Rogge grew up in Germany and a fascination with science from an early age led him to study Physics at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. He then went on to obtain a PhD in Physics from Stanford University in 1997.  He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and the Australian Institute of Physics, and is a program manager at the Australian Research Council’s Centre for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology.

As an experimental physicist, his research focuses on quantum systems in a solid-state environment and their translation to applications in quantum materials and technology. His work on gaining atomistic insight into the interactions of quantum objects, such as atoms and qubits, is a key component in Australia’s world-leading progress in quantum physics.
