My PhD thesis explored electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) and slow light in Bose-Einstein condensates. Part of the work focused on using these tools to induce interesting superfluid dynamics, including the creation and motion of solitons and vortices. In my subsequent research, I have pursued a variety of topics in cold atomic gases, low light level nonlinear optics, quantum memories, and coherent optical storage.
My recent interests have focused on quantum enhanced optical remote sensing (LIDAR), quantum networks, quantum limited communication receivers and codes, superconducting quantum circuits, and quantum computation.
I currently am the manager of the Quantum Information Processing (QuIP) group at Raytheon BBN Technologies (Cambridge, MA). QuIP is pursuing the application of quantum physics and technology to communications, sensing, and computing and collaborates with a variety of university, government lab, and industry partners in this pursuit. In addition to the business management of QuIP, I currently maintain active research in the following topics:
