Hi, I'm Matt Turner. I'm a PhD student in experimental physics. I use lasers to measure picoradians and cut steel, I speak Thai and pretend to speak a couple other SE Asian languages, and I like to make stuff (especially Thai food).
You can contact me at .
I'm graduating soon. I'm interested in job opportunities where I can be involved with hands-on research and development. Getting to play with lasers would be a plus.
I'm currently a member of the Eöt-Wash group at the Center for Experimental Nuclear Physics and Astrophysics at the University of Washington. This page lists my research interests, publications, talks, and academic profile links.
Building a Segway for under $300.
I found some funding for a 400W laser cutter/engraver for our lab. Here's where I'll post fun stuff I've done with it.
A few small projects I've done, including GetBook.py for creating ebooks from the Maxwell Institute website.
I like to make Thai food. Here is a PDF menu my wife made of the dishes in my repertoire. (Thanks, Michelle!) Invite yourself over for dinner sometime.
