I currently work in the Eöt-Wash group at the University of Washington’s Center for Experimental Nuclear Physics and Astrophysics (CENPA). Our group performs world-class measurements of gravity and tests of modern theories using torsion balances.

As an undergraduate at Brigham Young University, I worked in the high-intensity laser group led by Justin Peatross.

I shared an office with a postdoc, Krishna, whose work centered around building an instrument to measure seismic tilt for LIGO, the gravity-wave observatory that made the first detection of gravitational waves. The instrument consisted of a long bar with weights on each end that hung from a pair of thin flexures EDM-cut from beryllium […]
