Engineering Quantum Systems

(September 2021 - Present)

Prof Will Oliver, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

As an EECS PhD student in the EQuS group at MIT, I build superconducting quantum computers.

Quantronics Laboratory

Universal Control of Weakly Coupled Cavity-Transmon System (August 2019 - Jan 2021)

Prof Michel Devoret, Yale University

We demonstrate universal control of a weakly coupled cavity-transmon system using GRadient Ascent Pulse Engineering and by leveraging large phase space displacements to overcome the control speed limits imposed by the weak native dispersive interactions between our cavity and transmon system, with applications towards bosonic quantum error correction such as the GKP code.

Quantum Cascade Lasers

Sub-Terahertz Quantum Cascade Laser Transceivers (May 2019 - August 2019)

Prof Federico Capasso, Harvard University

We explored ring Quantum Cascade Lasers, and developed frequency comb generation and synchronization in coupled quantum cascade lasers to achieve dualcomb spectroscopy and sub-terahertz wireless communications. Data capture, data analysis, and simulations using MatLab and Python. Co-authored paper in Nature (doi:/10.1038/s41586-020-2386-6). Harvard 2019 REU, NSF. Presented at PhysCon 2019.

Yale Quantum Institute

Higher-Fidelity Measurement Models for Cavity QED Qubits (Feb 2018 - May 2019)

Prof Steven Girvin, Yale University

We aimed for higher fidelity and SNR using an adaptive off-resonant readout. We also designed a nested Mach-Zhender Interferometer setup leveraging counterfactual quantum phenomena. I ran all numerical Monte Carlo simulations built off of characteristic time-inhomogeneous Hidden Markov Models, using multi-processed Python run on Yale’s High Performance Computing cluster.

Future Physicists International Summer Camp

Generation and Quantum Storage of Non-classical Photon Pairs (July 2018 - July 2018)

Prof Dong-Sheng Ding, University of Science and Technology of China

I immersed myself in efforts to demonstrate Quantum Storage by generating entangled photon pairs through four-wave mixing on trapped Rb-85 atoms, and storing and recovering these pairs using Electromagnetically induced transparency.

5G Wireless Communications Research

Hybrid-Beamforming with MIMO Phased Array Systems (July 2016 - August 2016)

Prof Robert W. Heath Jr., University of Texas at Austin

I developed hybrid-precoding for a phased array, MIMO system for mmWave wireless communications using LabVIEW, C, and Python.

Mechatronics Research

Inertial Motion Capture and Analysis towards Stroke Rehabilitation (July 2015 - October 2015)

Prof Vikram Kapila, New York University: Tandon

Using micro-controllers, IMU sensors, and flex sensors, I built a low-cost, integrated arm and hand motion capture system intended to aid doctors in the physical rehabilitation of partially paralyzed stroke patients. I worked in MatLab, Python and Arduino (C).
