My research is focused towards controlling and manipulating atomic and molecular systems and the use of them to engineer correlated quantum phases such as superfluids, insulators, quantum magnets, and topological matter via equilibrium and nonequilibrium processes Additionally, I am interested in studying how to generate and manipulate entanglement in quantum systems for use in quantum information processing and precision measurements.
