Matt Turner

Research Associate - University of Washington

I'm a grad student in experimental physics. Our group specializes in precision tests of gravity via torsion balances, which requires expertise in precision angle measurement and experimental control. I have scientific experience with torsion balances, angular readout via optical systems, weak-value amplification, gravity gradiometry, and high-intensity optics (my undergrad work). I am also experienced in experiment design and construction; I've spent a lot of time with CAD, manual and CNC machine shop tools, and CNC laser cutting.
