Josh joined the Stamper-Kurn group in the winter of 2018 to build a brand new ultracold molecule experiment. He is particularly interested in studying how we can take advantage of the large perminant electric dipole moment (4 Debye!) in our molecule, LiRb, to study quantum phase transitions and quantum computing schemes.

Before joining the Stamper-Kurn group Josh completed his Ph.D. at the University of Wisconsin under the guidance of Prof. Mark Saffman (in collaboration with the group of Prof. Robert McDermott) studying quantum gates between superconductors and Rydberg atoms.

When not in the lab you can find Josh listening to Elton John’s “Rocket man” on repeat with his wife, to appease their two year old son.
