The PI

Dr. Patrick Vora

Associate Professor of Physics, George Mason University
Director, Quantum Science and Engineering Center (QSEC)

Dr. Vora received his PhD from the University of Pennsylvania in 2010 in experimental hard condensed matter physics. He has also developed expertise in ultrafast spectroscopy and quantum information through a postdoc at the Naval Research Laboratory.

At George Mason University, Dr. Vora works with graduate and undergraduate students to study quantum phenomena in atomically-thin materials using optics, electronic transport, and magnetic measurements. His teaching interests focus on PHYS260, PHYS412/512, and PHYS 407.
