I'm a theoretical physicist working at the interface of condensed matter, atomic physics, and quantum optics. In general, I'm interested in quantum and classical nonequilibrium physics with cold atoms and solid-state qubits, including:

 

Previously, I was an ITAMP Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard. I got my PhD and BS in physics at Caltech.
