I grew up in Seattle and did my undergraduate studies at Dartmouth, where I received B.A. degrees in Physics and Mathematics. In graduate school, I studied analog signal processing in superconducting circuits with Konrad Lehnert at JILA. For my thesis work, I built an on-chip superconducting circulator which breaks Lorentz reciprocity without the use of any permanent magnets. My current research interests include the construction of small-scale quantum networks and their application for studies of quantum information processing and many-body physics.
