Biography
Received the Ph.D. degree in physics from the University of Western Australia, Perth, W.A., Australia, in 1994. He is currently an ARC Laureate Fellow with the School of Physics, University of Western Australia. His research interests encompass the broad discipline of frequency and quantum metrology, precision measurements, and precision tests of the fundamental of physics. He is also the focal point of Australian participation in space experiments involving precision clocks and oscillators. Prof. Tobar was the recipient of the 2009 Barry Inglis medal presented by the National Measurement Institute for precision measurement, the 2006 Boas medal presented by the Australian Institute of Physics, 1999 Best Paper Award presented by the Institute of Physics Measurement Science and Technology, the 1999 European Frequency and Time Forum Young Scientist Award, the 1997 Australian Telecommunications and Electronics Research Board (ATERB) Medal, the 1996 Union of Radio Science International URSI) Young Scientist Award, and the 1994 Japan Microwave Prize. During 2007 he was elevated to Fellow of the IEEE and during 2008 the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering.

Recently Prof. Tobar received a citation from the Australian Learning and Teaching Council for inspiring research students to reach their full potential and transform to successful research scientists through participation in groundbreaking research.
