Teaching and Research Interests
I enjoy nearly all the Physics curriculum, but especially the parts where seemingly distinct topics are shown to be intricately related: space meets time, symmetry meets conservation law. In the lab, I use low-energy atomic-physics techniques for precision measurements and detailed control of quantum systems.
Students sharing these interests or looking to discuss their own should feel free to stop by any time.
