About

I grew up in Virginia and attended Princeton University, where I received an A.B. degree in physics. As an undergraduate, I researched precision metrology technologies for the LISA space mission at NASA’s Goddard Spaceflight Center, precision magnetometry using atomic comagnetometers with Princeton’s Romalis Group, and technologies for quantum computing and communications with Princeton’s Petta and Rodriguez groups and at MITRE. After undergrad, I worked in finance for a few years at DC Energy, where I developed quantitative trading algorithms for the firm to improve its performance in the financial transmission rights markets. I began my PhD at MIT in 2021, and since then I have been working with Profs. Evans and Mavalvala on applying squeezed light technology developed by LIGO to other precision metrology experiments and to quantum computing and communications. Broadly, my research interests include quantum optics, precision metrology, and quantum information.
