Dr Jacinda Ginges is a Research Fellow in the Quantum Theory Group at the University of Sydney. Her area of expertise is high-precision atomic tests of fundamental physics. Examples include tests of the standard model of particle physics and searches for new physics beyond through high-precision studies of atomic parity-violation and time-reversal violating atomic electric dipole moments. Jacinda developed new tools in high-precision atomic many-body theory, including a simple and effective means of accounting for quantum electrodynamic radiative corrections (self-energy and vacuum polarization) in many-body calculations for heavy atoms and ions. 
 
Jacinda held the Avadh Bhatia Postdoctoral Fellowship for Women (2004, University of Alberta, Canada) and was an ARC Australian Postdoctoral Fellow and Lecturer (2004-2008, UNSW). She has returned to physics relatively recently following a career break. It has just been announced that Jacinda has secured an ARC Future Fellowship to be based at UQ.  
 

Qualifications: 
PhD, University of New South Wales, Australia (2004)
Bachelor of Science (Hons), University of New South Wales, Australia (2000)
