I am a condensed matter and quantum devices physicist working on topological, strongly correlated, and controlled quantum systems. Currently a post-doc in the Devoret Group (Qlab) at Yale University, I will be starting a group at Cornell University’s School of Applied and Engineering Physics. I completed my Ph.D. in the Jarillo-Herrero Group at MIT, working largely on transport in ultrathin topological insulators and contributing to groundbreaking work on strongly-correlated electronic states by designed moire superlattices. I have also conducted research on superconductor-semiconductor nanowires in the Marcus Lab and, during my undergraduate years at Columbia University, on single-molecule electronic transport in the Venkataraman and Neaton Groups.

I am an Atlanta, Georgia, native who has developed an affinity for Northeastern climates (see my professional journey above). I enjoy playing backgammon and squash, and I collect old books, particularly on science, scientists, and history. My wife and I look forward to starting our lives with our two cats in Ithaca soon!
