I am a final-year PhD candidate 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 hybrid III-V on Diamond nanophotonic devices for coupling to neutral silicon vacancy (SiV0) centres. Currently I am investigating the stabilization of bulk implanted SiV0 centres through chemical surface termination, co-doping, and strain engineering. In parallel, I am fabricating 1D GaAs photonic crystal cavities for purcell-enhanced coupling to SiV0, and AlGaAs-on-Diamond ring resonators for frequency conversion of SiV0 emission to the telecom band.
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.
