All-Optical Interrogation of Neural Circuits

Understanding how patterns of electrical signals within the brain give rise to complex behavior, necessitates the ability to simultaneously record the activity of individual neurons and also manipulate the activity using optogenetic methods.

Programmable Photonics

Universal optical processors are photonic devices that can be reprogrammed to implement a variety of transformations, all on a single chip. Such programable photonics may enable breakthroughs in quantum computing, artificial intelligence, imaging and signals processing.

Quantum for AI & AI for Quantum

I’m fascinated by the intersection of machine learning and quantum mechanics; both in terms of how we can use quantum processors to accelerate machine learning and how we can leverage techniques from machine learning to help control and verify large-scale quantum systems.

Quantum Photonics

I develop large-scale quantum photonic processors in which information is encoded in quantum states of light and controlled on-chip via state-of-the-art photonic integrated circuits (PICs). In parallel, I'm developing a new suite of quantum protocols specifically designed for photonic hardware.
