Research Interests:

Quantum Tool Development

My laboratory focuses on small, table top-scale experiments, developing new quantum tools for precision measurements and employing them to address key problems in fundamental and applied science. We use nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers in diamond to perform magnetic imaging on the nanometer scale and study the fundamentals of statistical mechanics and many-body physics of interacting spin systems. We are also searching for dark matter, using precision nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) techniques.
