I am currently a PhD Student at the University of Sydney, with completion slated for August 2015; and am richly blessed to be married to my lovely wife Mayumi; and am the proud father of Theodore our son. The world, its abstractions, and the manipulation thereof, have always fascinated me, and much of my life has been dedicated to learning about them. This naturally led me to physics (the world), mathematics (its abstractions) and computer programming (algorithmic manipulation). This broad focus has made me a jack-of-all-trades, and master of few. I enjoy learning, reading, programming, puzzle-solving, board games, and spending time with family and friends.
- characterising the expected performance of novel two-qubit gates between double-quantum-dot singlet-triplet and triple-quantum-dot resonant-exchange qubits.
- estimation and dynamics analysis of the magnetic field gradient between the constituent dots of singlet-triplet qubits using Bayesian analysis.
