Jure Demsar received his undergraduate degree in physics and his Ph.D. degree in physics from the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia. After completing his Ph.D. degree in 2000, he spent 3 years at Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, New Mexico as a Director’s Postdoctoral Fellow before returning to Jozef Stefan Institute in Ljubljana as a Staff Member. In 2006, he received Sofja Kovalevskaja Award from Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, and since 2007, he heads a research group at the Physics Department of University of Konstanz, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. His research focuses on ultrafast phenomena in strongly correlated electron systems (superconductors, charge and spin density waves, heavy electron systems, and ferromagnets) utilizing time-resolved optical techniques from THz to ultraviolet and recently also time-resolved electron diffraction.
