Dr. Jonathan Curtis
HQI Postdoctoral Fellow
Jonathan came to Harvard in the fall of 2020, joining the Narang and Demler groups. His research lies at the interface between Condensed Matter theory and theoretical Quantum Optics. Previously, he studied a broad range of topics, including models of analogue spacetimes in Bose-Einstein condensates and quantum electrodynamic interactions between superconductors and microwave cavities. Currently, Jonathan’s research has focused on developing new methods for optically probing and controlling quantum materials, including unconventional superconductors, magnetic materials, and systems with correlated electrons. In 2020 Jonathan received his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Maryland, College Park where he was advised by Prof. Victor Galitski. Before that, in 2016 he graduated from the University of Rochester with a B.S. in Physics and Applied Mathematics.
