I am an experimental physicist working in the interdisciplinary domain of physics and materials science, emphasizing macroscopic quantum phenomena in solid-state platforms and their liaison with modern device technology. 

I joined The University of Tennessee at Knoxville (UTK) in Aug. 2022 as an assistant professor in Department of Materials Science and Engineering and Department of Physics and Astronomy. My research group is part of the Tennessee Quantum Center of Institute for Advanced Materials and Manufacturing (IAMM).
