My current research interests focus on the study of microscopic sources of decoherence in superconducting qubits. Using finite element modeling tools and superconducting circuit solvers, I have developed simulation frameworks to further study two level systems and other phenomenological descriptions of noise in a more parameterized form. Apart from my direct contributions to the noise modeling effort, I maintain an interest in the fundamental dynamics of superconducting resonators and bright entangled microwave photon sources relevant to both astrophysical detectors and quantum communication applications.
