Principal investigator

I am an assistant professor at UC Santa Barbara in the Department of Physics. I study fundamental symmetries and quantum chemical reactions.

I received my bachelor's degree from Harvard and my PhD from Yale, advised by Jack Harris. Following my PhD I did a postdoc for Wes Campbell, where we laser cooled and trapped atoms with an optical frequency comb.
