Physicist

I am a theoretical physicist with expertise in condensed matter physics and atomic, molecular and optical (AMO) physics. I received a B. A. in Physics, with Honors, and a B. S. in Mathematics from the University of Chicago and defended a Ph. D. thesis in Physics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in February 2020. My Honors Thesis focused on re-equilibration processes and solitons in ultracold quantum gases. My Ph. D. Dissertation addresses hollow ultracold quantum fluids, quasi-two-dimensional topological systems and quasiperiodicity and multifractality in one-dimensional quantum models. 

 

I have a strong track record of collaborating with experimental physicists and have always prioritized projects related to realizable experimental systems. My training in condensed matter theory combined with my experience with ultracold atomic and metamaterials experiments allowed me to explore various projects and keep broad interests.
