I've been interested in science for as long as I can remember. Physics became my passion in high school and I carried that through to a Physics major at the University of Richmond. I earned my Phd at Bryn Mawr College under Prof. Michael Noel with a dissertation titled Controllable Rydberg Atom Interactions in a Magneto-Optical Trap.

Research

My research focus is on the experimental and computational studies of strongly interacting quantum mechanical systems -- specifically, ultra-cold Rydberg atom interactions. I collaborate with the cold atoms group at Bryn Mawr College, with whom I share a collaborative NSF grant. We tend to do experimental work at Bryn Mawr and computational work here at Ursinus, where we have a 48-core beowulf supercomputer cluster and we are about to build a new 148-core machine.

Here are some recent publications with Ursinus student co-authors:

  • E. Altiere, D. P. Fahey, M. W. Noel, R. J. Smith, and T. J. Carroll, Dipole-dipole interaction between rubidium Rydberg atoms, Phys. Rev. A 84, 053431 (2011).
  • T. J. Carroll, C. Daniel, L. Hoover, T. Sidie, M.W. Noel, Simulations of the dipole-dipole interaction between two spatially separated groups of Rydberg atoms, Phys. Rev. A 80, 052712 (2009).
