Noah joined Professor Manfra’s group as part of Microsoft Quantum Purdue in November of 2021. Prior to joining the group, he participated in post doctorial research at Purdue University. Under Prof. Bhave in OxideMEMS Lab, Noah engineered RF MEMS resonators and their interactions with electronic quantum defect spins in diamond (NV-centers) and 4H- SiC. Under Prof. Morisette’s WideBand Group, Noah researched High-power Trigate MOSFETs in 4H- SiC. As part of Microsoft Quantum Purdue, he is researching and developing the fabrication and characterization of nanostructures based on III-V semiconductors and superconductors for topological quantum computing.
