Claire Marvinney, Ph.D.

Oak Ridge National Lab


Bio: Claire Marvinney is originally from Maine and grew up hiking and exploring the geology of the Appalachian Mountains, something she continues to do today in Tennessee.  Currently, Claire is an early career staff scientist at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in the Quantum Information Science Section where she develops squeezed light sources for continuous-variable quantum sensing and quantum computing experiments, working with Raphael Pooser.

She first joined ORNL in 2018 as an Intelligence Community Postdoctoral Fellow under the direction of Benjamin Lawrie, where she worked on the development of a millikelvin optical microscopy system in order to study superconducting devices and quantum materials at cryogenic temperatures.
