PhD (Physics) Caltech;  BA (Physics, Astrophysics) UC Berkeley

My research focuses on the physics of matter cooled to just barely above absolute zero, and explores the phenomenon of Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) terrestrially and in microgravity.    I perform experiments (with students) at Bates and (with collaborators) at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory using ultracold atoms trapped in ultrahigh vacuum with magnetic fields and lasers.
