Quantum Optics Research Scientist at Caltech



I am a Quantum Optics Research Scientist at Caltech.  I earned my PhD in Duncan Steel's lab at The University of Michigan in 2015 studying quantum dots (QDs) and particularly entanglement using QD spins and photons.  I then moved to Caltech for a Postdoc in Jeff Kimble's lab coupling cold atoms to nanophotonic structures where I was promoted to a research scientist.  You can find out more about my current and previous research here.  

     When I am not working in the lab I enjoy exploring the many interesting places around Los Angeles and California.  You can see some pictures of these adventures here.
