I’m a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Cambridge, in the Cavendish Laboratory AMOP division, working in the group of Professor Mete Atatüre. I am supported by a Junior Research Fellowship at St. John’s College. 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.

Past Experience

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.
