Welcome Dr. Jason Kestner!

Jason KestnerThe Department welcomes its newest member, Assistant Professor, Dr. Jason Kestner.

Dr. Kestner says of his research:
"Broadly speaking, I am interested in engineering useful physical devices that exploit the strange (but beautiful!) features of quantum mechanics. I am pursuing that interest via theoretical studies of ultracold atoms, ultracold polar molecules, and "artificial" atoms and molecules, i.e., quantum dot systems in solid state materials. My research on ultracold systems is motivated primarily by the prospect of building a versatile quantum simulator, while my research on quantum dots is motivated primarily by the prospect of quantum information processing with semiconductor spin qubits. In addition to these, I am always excited by opportunities to explore new applications of uniquely quantum behavior."
