Postdoctoral Scholar at Princeton University
August 2019 - present
Led the team trapping Yb atoms in optical tweezers.
Quantum Optics Research Scientist at Caltech
September 2017 - August 2019
I oversaw the quantum optics experimental labs at Caltech where we were coupling atoms to nanophotonic waveguides using an optical lattice delivery method. We created a new lab utilizing optical tweezers for controlled single-atom delivery to nanophotonic structures
Postdoctoral Scholar at Caltech
July 2015 - September 2017
Conducted experiments coupling atoms to nanophotonic waveguides using an optical lattice conveyor belt to deliver atoms. We performed extensive calculations of atomic trajectories to understand the behavior of atoms near the device. details of this experiment are found in the first publication above, Clocked atom delivery to a photonic crystal waveguide.
PhD Student at The University of Michigan
Spetember 2008 - July 2015
Conducted research with applications to quantum information science using quantum dots. The most groundbreaking of these was the demonstration of entanglement between a quantum dot spin and its spontaneously emitted photon. This work was published in PRL and was chosen by Science as the editor's choice.
