Research

I have a strong interest in nanomechanics as a universal measurement platform, as well as superfluidity and superconductivity, in particular superfluid 3He at ultra-low temperatures. My lab is working on superfluids in nanoscale geometries, nanoscale superconductivity, the quantum properties of nanomechanical resonators, and much more.
