I am a physicist studying quantum many-body systems, particularly exotic phases of matter and their dynamics.
Originally from Aurora, Ontario, I moved to the east coast to pursue a degree in jazz performance at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. After deciding that professional musician wasn't a good fit for me, I switched to the physics program and completed my honours thesis under the supervision of Dr. Brandon P. van Zyl, studying density functional theory in two-dimensional dipolar gases.
After completing my BSc in 2015, I moved to McMaster University in Hamilton, where I completed my MSc in 2017 and PhD in 2022 under the supervision of Dr. Duncan H. J. O'Dell.
Afterwards, I moved to Innsbruck, Austria for 1.5 years to work as a postdoc in the group of Russell Bisset, and am currently at the University of Heidelberg, co-supervised by Lauriane Chomaz and Thomas Gasenzer.
I have been teaching assistant for a number of courses at McMaster University, ranging from first year to graduate level. Generally, my duties include coordination on assignments and solutions as well as marking for the upper-year courses. For the first-year courses, activities are generally restricted to labs and tutorials.
