Graduate Student Profile



Gerasimos Angelatos

Hi, I’m Gerry, a PhD student studying mesoscopic quantum optics in Hakan Tureci’s group.  I am particularly interested in developing theoretical frameworks and computational approaches to help understand real quantum structures and propose systems which demonstrate novel physics or for applications in quantum information.  My current research involves the use of stochastic methods to study large quantum optical systems and noise in excitable lasers.  I completed my undergraduate and Master’s degree in engineering physics at Queen’s university in Canada, where I studied coupled quantum dot-nanowire photonic crystal systems for quantum information science applications.   For non-research fun, I captain the Princeton club running team, read voraciously, and homebrew beer.
