I am a Research Scientist at Microsoft Station Q. We are located on UC Santa Barbara campus. Prior to joining Microsoft Research, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Joint Quantum Institute, University of Maryland and NIST. I did my PhD at the Theoretical Physics Institute, University of Minnesota. My area of expertise is theoretical condensed matter physics with topics including superconductivity, strongly correlated systems, topological phases of matter, phase transitions and critical phenomena, noise and fluctuation processes in mesoscopic systems and solid state quantum information processing.
