What drew you to PME?

The collaborative atmosphere makes PME special. There are no boundaries to engaging with other research, which results in exciting science. Also, many faculty I admire are here and the prospect of working with them was attractive to me. Everyone is in the same mindset and spirit: they want to do new things or try things differently.

What are you most proud of accomplishing in your time at PME?

While it still feels pretty new, I’m proud of the wonderful lab and wonderful team that we have developed. We are currently engaging is some very exciting experiments.

Where do you see PME in 10 years?

I see a great deal of potential for PME in quantum science and engineering. I think that it could be the unequivocal center of quantum research in the world.

What breakthroughs do you anticipate will happen in your field in 10 years?

The next 10 years will be exciting. Quantum technology is not just a research topic—it will result in widely used applications. The transition from research to technology will also give us further opportunities to expand our scope of research.
