I am a PhD student at Center of Quantum Research and Technology at OU. I am doing my research in Atomic and Molecuar physics. At present I am doing quantum simulations for a qudits (at present 3 states) realized through specialized system of Rybderg atoms in a lattice using sophisticated phase-space methods like truncated Wigner approximation (TWA). Prior to that, I worked on research involving open quantum systems and quantum chemistry. It involved analyzing the decoherence of the water's hydrogen molecule on Born-Oppenheimer surfaces. Another included utilizing dressed Rydberg aggregates to simulate the interior vibrations of molecular aggregates. My research interests include quantum optics, quantum chemistry, open quantum systems, quantum information.
