I’m a Royal Society University Research Fellow and an Associate Professor at the University of Oxford, in the department of Engineering Science, where I started a new research group in quantum science and technology in January 2022.

My current research is on quantum optics, quantum information processing, and many-body phenomena with optically-active semiconductor spins (quantum dots and defect centres in diamond). I am generally interested in the control of mesoscopic systems, and projects that provide us with insight on fundamental processes, while staying connected to technological applications.

My research is supported by the Royal Society, the EPSRC (New Investigator Award), the Quantum Computation and Simulation Hub (I-PRF), and ETRI Korea.

I am available for consulting work.

Past Experience

Until September 2021, I was a Junior Research Fellow at St John’s College, and a postdoctoral associate in the Cavendish Laboratory AMOP division, working with the group of Professor Mete Atatüre. From September 2021 until December 2021, I was also a Royal Society University Research Fellow at the University of Cambridge.

I completed my Ph.D. at MIT in 2016, in the Center for Ultracold Atoms, working in the group of Professor Vladan Vuletić. My research was on controlling friction at the atomic scale using individual trapped atoms in vacuum.

I also used to read textbooks, pass exams, and do research for a living at the University of British Columbia, in the awesome Engineering Physics program, where I graduated in 2010.

I am a dual national of France and Canada.
