AFFILIATIONS

Adjunct Assistant Professor, Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Waterloo
IQC Affiliate, Institute for Quantum Computing, University of Waterloo

Research Interests

I am currently looking for new students. Please refer to my personal website and publications for information on my research interests.

Potential PhD students should apply to the Physics Department at the University of Waterloo. Students interested in pursuing studies for an MSc should apply to Perimeter's PSI program. (Students in PI's graduate programs receive their degree from the partnering university where their supervisor has an affiliation. In my case, this is the University of Waterloo.)

Undergraduate students interested in spending the summer at PI can apply through the PI Undergraduate Student Program.
