I completed my PhD at Michigan State University under the guidance of Prof. Johannes Pollanen, where I did experimental work studying the interaction of superconducting quantum circuits with superfluid helium and surface acoustic waves. During my time at MSU I also conducted experimental work studying acoustically pumped charge transport in exfoliated graphene. Outside of physics, I generally enjoy being outside (running, hiking, biking or simply going on long walks.)
My research at Yale is focused on studying the dynamics of non-Hermitian systems near higher-order exceptional points. These systems are created and manipulated in the lab using several coupled mechanical modes of a “membrane-in-the-middle” cavity optomechanics setup.
