Welcome to my homepage!


I am an assistant professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Bates College. My laboratory homepage is here.

Most recently I was an NRC postdoctoral fellow in the Laser Cooling and Trapping Group at NIST in Gaithersburg, MD. I was also associated with the Joint Quantum Institute.

I did my PhD at the California Institute of Technology, in the Quantum Sciences & Technology group at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. I was advised there by Lute Maleki and Rob Thompson, and at Caltech by Ken Libbrecht.

In previous lives I worked at MIT Lincoln Laboratory and was an undergrad in the physics and astronomy departments at UC Berkeley.


I currently live in Portland (Maine) with my wife and son.


Recent papers:
Differential Light-Shift Cancellation in a Magnetic-Field-Insensitive Transition of 87Rb (PRL)
Experimental observation of magic-wavelength behavior of 87Rb atoms in an optical lattice (PRA)
Field-sensitive addressing and control of field-insensitive neutral-atom qubits (Nature Physics)
Ultracold atoms in a radiofrequency-dressed optical lattice (PRL)

Some older papers: laser building,dual-species,spinor BEC.
