2019 Truman Fellow
Pauli received his BS in engineering physics from Tufts University and PhD in experimental AMO physics from UC Berkeley in 2015. Most recently, he has been a postdoc at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, where he has been working on magnetic sensing applications in geology, biology, and NMR using nitrogen-vacancy (NV) color centers in diamond. At Sandia, Pauli will work on demonstrating novel applications of NV centers as a high-resolution sensor for imaging microwave fields emitted by "live" electronics. His research will enhance Sandia's capabilities in microelectronics and microsystems and in fundamental materials science and nanotechnology. His mentor will be Peter Schwindt and his manager Shanalyn Kemme, in AO Sensing and EC Engineering (5228).
