Research and Projects
My research interests are in Quantum Information and Computing, as well as Geometry and Topology and their applications in physics.

Phase sensitive electric field detection using a mechanical microwave mixer.
Developed a method for make phase sensitive, contactless measurements of electric fields using a mechanical cantilever as a microwave mixer. I demonstrated that the technique works for RF fields up to 3+ GHz.
This project was done under the supervision of Prof. Raffi Budakian.
Adaptive optics for addressing ions in an ion trap.Details
Implemented adaptive optics in the laboratory with the goal of gaining optical abberation correction and detailed, in-situ and real-time addressing of ions in a Yb+ ion trap. I handled the implementation details, from designing the optics to writing the software to control the setup.
pySLM: Python Spatial Light ModulationGithub PyPI
A python package for controlling spatial light modulators, such as LCD adaptive optics or Digital Micromirror devices. Co-authored by myself and Gilbert Shih.
