Research Interests
My research interests include materials for quantum computing, microwave resonators and amplifiers, and neutron detectors. Currently, I use coplanar waveguides as a tool to probe different materials including defects in Si(100), boron nitride, and graphene. Noise in electronics is a fundamental issue that occurs in many different areas including 2D materials and superconducting circuits. Decoherence is generated by materials which quantum bits are made of, this is a major obstacle preventing a working quantum computer. My background in surface science is an invaluable tool I use to address important questions about materials used in quantum computing.
