Ph.D. Candidate, Physics
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Together with a team we have developed a novel hybrid system where arrays of individually controllable ultracold ions are trapped inside an optical resonator in vaccum . We are currently using this system for two related objectives: to develop a scalable architecture for quantum computing based on ions strongly coupled to photons, and to simulate microscopic models of friction [2,3] in a novel and poorly understood quantum many-body regime, which might become relevant for nano-scale devices.
I received my Bachelor of Applied Science in Engineering Physics from the University of Toronto in 2009. I did my undergraduate thesis research  in the group of John Wei in experimental solid state physics, trying to probe mesoscopic effects in nano-structured high temperature superconductors in order to understand the controversial pseudogap phase.
I have also spent 3 summers working at TRIUMF (Canada's National Laboratory for Particle and Nuclear Physics) developing a radio frequency (RF) drive system for a Penning ion trap for precision measurements of masses of unstable nuclei at the TITAN experiment, as well as helping construct, commission and tune the new superconducting linear accelerator (ISAC-II) for heavy exotic isotopes .
