Tejas Deshpande received his Ph.D. from the California Institute of Technology in experimental condensed matter physics in 2020. He is currently a postdoctoral fellow at Northwestern University at the Center for Fundamental Physics working on performing tests of gravity and quantum mechanics using atom interferometry and detecting ultralight scalar dark matter using cryogenic optical cavities. At Fermilab, he is involved in performing design, construction, testing and simulation on the MAGIS-100 experiment, which is meant to be a testbed for gravitational waves and ultralight dark matter detection.
