Brad is Canadian and received his BSc in Physics from the University of Northern British Columbia in 2019 where he primarily worked on custom terahertz lens design, simulation, and fabrication. He also spent time working on design, construction, and implementation of a mill-line particleboard density scanner for quality control. Brad is now a graduate student under Dr. Mark Sherwin of the UCSB Physics Dept. and his research focuses primarily on electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR). Alongside developing EPR techniques and instrumentation, Brad is working toward tracking protein dynamics using EPR as well as using EPR to probe fundamentally quantum systems, including frustrated magnetism, single-molecule-magnet qubit candidates, and fractionalized excitations.
