About Me:

Colour logo RGB_DM  sjc20logo20colour20landscape-ed-fw_.png

I’m a postdoctoral research fellow at Cambridge University, in the Cavendish Laboratory AMOP division, working in the group of Professor Mete Atatüre. I am supported by a Junior Research Fellowship at St. John’s College. My current research is on quantum optics and quantum information processing with optically-active semiconductor quantum dots. I am generally interested in the control of mesoscopic systems, and projects that provide us with insight on fundamental processes, while staying connected to technological applications.


I finished my Ph.D. at MIT in 2016, in the Center for Ultracold Atoms, working in the group of Professor Vladan Vuletic. My research was on controlling friction at the atomic scale using individual trapped atoms in vacuum.


I also used to read textbooks, pass exams, and do research for a living at the University of British Columbia, in the awesome Engineering Physics program, where I graduated in 2010.

I am a dual national of France and Canada.
