Personal profile

Research interests

I spend most of my time investigating and building platforms for quantum and quantum-limited applications including: photonic/optical machine learning, quantum sensing, and continuous-variable quantum information. I predominently look at how these applications can be implemented on the small scale in integrated photonics, using materials like silicon.
