I am an assistant professor of physics in the James Franck Institute at the University of Chicago. The focus of my work will be on hybrid approaches to quantum information processing.
Previously, I worked as a postdoc and graduate student in the Applied Physics Department of Yale University under the guidance of Professor Rob Schoelkopf. I was fortunate to work on an amazing project which we call circuit QED. In this research I developed superconducting qubits for quantum information processing and explored the interface of quantum optics and electronic circuits. This work culminated in my dissertation which won the Northeastern Assocation of Graduate Schools Thesis Prize. You can find out more about circuit QED in the research section.
Prior to my time at Yale, I was an undergraduate at Brown University. My concentration was in Math-Physics for which I received an Sc.B. in 2001. I wrote a honors thesis in the lab of Nobel Laureate Leon Cooper on biologically inspired image recognition algorithms.
