Biographic Overview

My research background is in optics, lasers, and instrumentation for interferometric ground-based gravitational-wave detectors. My PhD research was on squeezed states of light for gravitational-wave detectors, and my postdoctoral work was on commissioning the advanced LIGO detectors. Iā€™m excited to build an inclusive research group at Syracuse and set up a new lab space focused on testing technologies for future gravitational-wave detectors.
