We have been lucky to have worked with the amazing Joshua E. Brown, a Staff Writer at the University of Vermont and Catherine Longmire at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, both excellent communicators of science, to help us describe some of our work to the general public.

A new massively parallel supercomputer for Vermont

A Major Research Infrastructure (MRI) grant from the National Science Foundation of over $1 million supported a new supercomputer named DeepGreen composed of 80 GPUs delivering over 1 petaflop for of high performance computing power for the Vermont Advanced Computing Core.

Putting the breaks on superconductivity in nanowires

We contributed a few theoretical ideas to understand some amazing experiments on superconducting nanowires reported in Nature Physics where a magnetic field can tune a quantum phase transition to the metallic state.

Critical wetting on graphene

Some popular accounts of our paper which appeared in Physical Review Letters where we explore the physics of wetting using graphene as a substrate.

An entangled connection between 4He and black holes

These articles are based on our paper which appeared in Nature Physics where we show that the entanglement entropy in the ground state of superfluid helium is governed by an information boundary law.

Quantum Physics on Tap

Working with the Gervais Lab at McGill University we helped to characterize and understand the smallest superfluid ever measured. An account of our work appeared in Science Advances.
