Garrett R. Williams is a physics Ph.D. Candidate at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign who completed his PhD project in 2023 in experimental atomic physics under co-PIs Bryce Gadway and Brian L. DeMarco. Williams achieved a Bose-Einstein condensate apparatus and performed experiments creating and observing collective quantum magnetism in a two-component gas of interacting atoms. He is now a visiting graduate student in the Anderson Lab working on manufacturing large, broadly tunable nonlinearities near the quantum paraelectric regime in perovskite (ABO3) materials for engineering quantum networks.
