Stephen Hemmerle

Steve graduated from MSU with a Masters in Physics in 2019. In the lab Steve worked on a variety of experimental and computational projects associated with electrons on helium and quantum computing. He is currently a business analyst at Capitol One. Before this he worked as a Venture Associate at EeroQ Inc. as well as a founder of Invest Together LLC.


Mazin Khasawneh

Mazin’s primary interests while he was a postdoc in the group were associated with the coupling of piezeoelectric surface acoustic waves to graphene with the goal of creating density tunable acoustoelectric devices. Mazin was also instrumental in helping to turn the LHQS from an empty room into the state-of-the-art quantum measurement lab that it is today! He is currently an Instructor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Earlham College.

Anna Turnbull

Anna graduated from MSU in 2017 with a BS in Physics and was a part of the initial team that built the LHQS from the ground up! During her time in the group Anna worked to help implement our first experiments coupling surface acoustic wave techniques to graphene devices.

Joshua Milem

Josh graduated from MSU in December 2017 with a BS in Physics. He is now a Ph.D. student in Physics at IST Austria where he is working on topological quantum computing experiments using semi-conductor/superconductor hybrid wires.  During his time at MSU Josh worked on Monte Carlo simulations of 2d electron systems in a collaborative effort to ultimately achieve novel qubits using electrons on the surface of liquid helium.
