In the spring of 2017, he founded a Project QUERB club at Gunn which has designed, performed and published multiple quantum mechanics and photonics experiments (some of which have been successful).
Through exploring the IBM Quantum Experience platform by empirically testing the descriptions of GRW and Copenhagen state evolution through quantum simulations in 2018, he recognized the educational value of democratizing access to sophisticated hardware over the internet for the purpose of conducting quantum science experiments.
Dr. Neal N. Oza
His thesis, entitled "Engineering Photonic Switches for Quantum Information Processing", explored the design, development, and testing of all-optical switches for use as routers of quantum information processing (QIP).
Moreover, it demonstrated a proof-of-concept method that uses such switches to fully characterize higher-dimensional quantum entangled states.
Neal has enjoyed his roles as an educator and mentor in the forms of a post-doc, senior graduate student, teaching assistant, tutor, and STEM outreach advisor/presenter.
He is excited to couple his passions as a teacher and a research engineer/scientist to provide an accessible STEAM education platform focused around quantum physics.
