Danielle Braje

Assistant Group Leader, Quantum Information and Integrated Nanosystems Group, MIT Lincoln Laboratory

Danielle Braje is an assistant leader of the Quantum Information and Integrated Nanosystems Group at MIT’s Lincoln Laboratory. With a focus on quantum sensing, her group applies the fundamental stability of quantum systems to the sensing arena. Current development focuses on small, portable, solid-state systems like nitrogen vacancies in the diamond lattice. Her research interests span from atomic physics and low-light-level nonlinear optics to atom interferometry and quantum coherence. Braje has received a Hertz Fellowship, Urbanek Fellowship and NSF Fellowship. She has served on NSF and NASA panels, and is a member of the American Physical Society. She earned a BS in physics from the University of Arizona, and a PhD in applied physics from Stanford University.
