 Patrick received his Ph.D. in 2020 from Washington University in St. Louis. During his Ph.D., he worked on the control of quantum states using dissipation and measurement dynamics of superconducting circuits. Patrick’s research addresses how interactions at the classical-quantum boundary are essential for quantum state preparation and readout.

At MIT, Patrick works on the detection of coherent elastic neutrino scattering enabled by superconducting circuit readout technology as well as quantum simulation using engineered dissipation.
