Biography

Noah graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Physics at UC San Diego. During his time there he worked with Richard Averitt using pump-probe spectroscopy to study correlated electron systems and spent a summer at the Subatomic Physics Group at Los Alamos National Laboratory. Noah joined John Harter's group in the Materials department at UC Santa Barbara to study quantum materials. In particular, his work focuses on optical and photoelectronic characterization of unconventional superconductors and strongly correlated systems. The goal of his research for the Quantum Foundry is the eventual control of Majorana quasiparticles in topological superconductors, necessary for the development of topological quantum computing.
