Biography

I am a 2nd year PhD student working under the supervision of Nathalie de Leon in the department of Electrical Engineering at Princeton University. My research focuses on the design and fabrication of semiconductor nanophotonic devices interfaced with quantum defects in diamond. With this platform I seek to explore key quantum communication network building block experiments such as spin-photon entanglement at telecom communication wavelengths.

I received my BASc in Electrical Engineering at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. My thesis work was performed under the supervision of John Madden and investigated the fabrication of soft-electronics sensors for use in a smart bedsheet. During my undergraduate studies I also worked with Jorge Santiago-Aviles at the University of Pennsylvania through an NSF REU on synthesizing biocompatible piezoelectric nanofibres for use in a novel noninvasive ear surgery procedure.
