Assistant Professor
Research interests:

Quantum information; light-matter Interactions; nanophotonics; quantum coherent control; single emitter spectroscopy;

  • Single- and entangled-photon generation from quantum dots
  • Coherent quantum control of semiconductor qubits
  • Design and fabrication of nanophotonic light-matter interfaces (waveguides, cavities) in dielectric media
  • Wavefront control of quantum light for secure communication
  • Benchmark fundamental limits on quantum algorithms imposed by physical implementation of qubits
  • Students learn to design and build cryogenic optical microscopy setups for investigating quantum nature of emission from single emitters
  • Students are involved in the design and can learn to use micro-/nano-fabrication facilities at MATFab
  • Students gain hands-on experience with ultrafast lasers, multiphoton correlation measurements using state-of-the-art experimental hardware
  • Students learn to develop projects independently while communicating and working with local and international collaborators as well as publish and present at conferences.
Research areas
  • Condensed Matter and Materials Physics
