Quantum Engineering

I am a Research Fellow at the Neural Computation Lab at University College London, developing optical technologies for large-scale control and readout of neural circuits.

Previously, I was developing on photonic technologies to accelerate quantum and classical computing, initially as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Quantum Photonics Lab and then at the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen. I completed my PhD in 2015 at the University of Bristol Centre for Quantum Photonics.

​I have been awarded a Marie-Skłodowska Curie Global Fellowship, attended the 66th Landau Nobel Laureates Meeting and was a UK finalist in FameLab.
