I am currently a postdoctoral scholar at the Univeristy of Chicago in the Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics. I work in the South Pole Telescope (SPT) collaboration, primarily on warm and cold digital frequnecy multiplexed (dfMux) readout and detector testing. I am additionally working on development of a sub-Kelvin SQUID architecture for dfMux.
