JP Dervan (B. Fleming)
Jack Roth (D. DeMille, S. Cahn): Jack graduated from Yale College in 2019 and has since been working in the DeMille group on developing a novel molecular beam slowing technique.
Past Postgraduate Associates at Wright Lab
Sanah Bhimani (L. Newburgh): Sanah graduated from U.C. Berkeley in 2018. As a postgrad at Yale she worked on assembling and calibrating the thermometry for the Simons Observatory telescope receivers. She learned about cryogenic requirements, thermometry, readout noise, and continued to build on her experience in data analysis. Sanah is now a Ph.D. student in Physics at Yale.
Andrew Kilby (D. Moore): Andrew graduated from Yale College in 2018. As a postgrad at Wright Lab he wokred on developing a microfludic system for providing micron scale modulating masses as part of the SIMPLE project. This project aims to search for new gravity-like forces that may appear at distances <100 microns.
Arina Bykadorova Telles (K. Heeger): Arina graduated from Yale College in 2018. As a postgrad at Wright Lab she continued her research training with PROSPECT and the Project 8 experiment, as well as training on modern fabrication techniques and prototyping in the Advanced Prototyping Center at Wright Lab. Arina is now a Ph.D. student in Physics at Yale.
Field Rogers (R. Maruyama): Field graduated from Yale College in 2015 and was a Postgraduate Associate in the Maruyama lab working on DM-Ice from 2015 - 2016. Field is currently a Ph.D. student in Physics at MIT.
