I am a post-doctoral researcher in the Joint Quantum Institute at the University of Maryland. Using laser cooled arrays of trapped and levitated atomic ions, I study the unique properties of many-body quantum systems. As part of the Trapped Ion Quantum Information group, I am working to engineer these highly controllable systems into the fundamental components of a quantum computer.
I received my Ph.D. in physics from Harvard University in 2014, and my B.A. in astrophysics from Williams College in 2008.
When not in the lab, I enjoy playing ultimate frisbee and experimenting in the kitchen with exotic recipes.
