I am an Associate Professor of Physics in the Oregon Center for Optics and Department of Physics at the University of Oregon.

I did a postdoc in what was formerly knows as the T-8 group at Los Alamos National Laboratory, working on issues related to quantum measurement, quantum chaos, and quantum technology. I did my Ph.D. work in the Physics Department at The University of Texas at Austin. There I did experimental research on laser-cooled atoms and quantum chaos in Mark Raizen's Atom Optics Laboratory. I did my undergraduate studies at the University of Dayton in physics and mathematics.
