I’m a scientist interested in tackling challenging technical and analytical problems wherever I can find them. I specialize in data analysis, experimental design & automation.
I’m currently a Senior Software Engineer at Rigetti Computing. I work on our internal-facing tools and data infrastructure, and support our design-fabrication-test development cycle.
Before Rigetti, I worked in Intel’s Logic Technology Development division where I developed new tools and methods for modeling the yield of future products. I also built a pipeline for predicting the power and performance of material moving through the fab on our next-generation process node. Prior to this, I was a Yield Analysis Engineer with Intel Custom Foundry.
My graduate work was in experimental solid state physics, where I studied the interactions between magnets and materials with strong spin-orbit coupling in Professor Dan Ralph‘s Nanoscale Physics group at Cornell University. My main project was on using topological insulators to generate spin torques, the first results of which were published in Nature.
This site contains my professional work and technical side projects. I also have a personal web page, gotfork.net, which hosts my photography and not much else.
