Biography

I graduated from the University of New South Wales with degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Commerce.

 

I am passionate about experimental research, motivated to extend the boundaries of knowledge. My original research focus was in the field of aeroacoustics and now for my PhD I have transitioned into quantum physics.

 

Under the supervision of 2018 Australian of the Year, Professor Michelle Simmons, I will conduct my PhD research in the world leading CQC2T laboratories with the aim of helping Australia win the ‘space race of the computing era’ to develop the world’s first quantum super computer. 

 

In my spare time you will find me bowling pies in a game of cricket.
