Postdoc, University of California, Berkeley, USA (2011)

Ph. D. (Physics), University of Queensland, Australia (2006)

B. S. (Hons.) (Electrical Engineering and Computer Science), Cornell University, USA (2000)

My research centers on various aspects of measurement, control, dynamics and characterization of quantum systems, particularly with application to quantum technologies.

I am particularly interested in (i) the dynamical properties that emerge at the few-body and many-body scale as a result of quantum mechanics, (ii) identifying structural features that help to preserve quantum coherence in many-body systems, and (iii) utilizing dynamical properties that result from quantum coherence to develop quantum technologies.

Much of my current focus is on quantum computing and quantum simulation. I lead the OVER-QC project funded by the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science, Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) program, and also have lead roles in several other DOE/ASCR projects (QOALAS, AIDE-QC), DOE Basic Energy Sciences (BES) projects, and internally funded projects.

If you're interested in a postdoc position or internship at Sandia (California) in quantum information science please contact me.

Prior to joining Sandia National Labs I was a postdoc at the University of California at Berkeley in the group of K. Birgitta Whaley, and a graduate student at the University of Queensland in the group of Gerard J. Milburn.
