I’m currently a PhD student in Applied Physics at Yale University, and I’ve conducted research previously at Raytheon BBN Technologies, Qubitekk Inc., and Northeastern University. See my CV for more details!
My research interests are focused on engineering superconducting circuits for quantum information science and other novel computational paradigms such as neuromorphic computing. I am also interested in microwave engineering using superconducting electronics and novel methods for coherent control of quantum systems.
