Department of Physics, Engineering Physics & Astronomy


Co-advised with Prof. Nir Rotenberg of Quantum Nanophotonics Lab.

Adam is currently pursuing a Master’s of Applied Science, focusing on optimizing quantum photonic circuits with machine learning. He graduated from Queen’s University with a B. A. Sc. in Engineering Physics with a Computing specialization. Adam’s undergraduate thesis focused on designing and simulating a linear photonic circuit using quantum dot emitters as single photon sources in order to produce photonic cluster states. In his free time Adam enjoys hiking, skiing, climbing, intramural sports, and video games.
