András Dombi works as a postdoctoral researcher in the Quantum Optics and Quantum Information Department of the Wigner Research Centre for Physics. He received his BSc and MSc diplomas in Cluj-Napoca, from the Babes-Bolyai University, after which he was selected for a Marie-Curie fellowship for young researchers, starting to work at the research centre in 2011. He got his PhD degree in 2016 from the Eötvös Loránd University in the field of Statistical physics, biological physics and quantum physics. Since 2020 he has been working as a Wigner postdoc. After receiving his PhD in theoretical physics he switched to working within experimental physics. He has studied nonlinear atom-photon interactions, focusing on cavity quantum electrodynamics and ultra cold atoms. He was an integral part of the group that found experimental evidence for the first time for the photon-blockade breakdown phase transition. His most important papers include:
