Alex Sushkov is an associate professor of physics and electrical and computer engineering at Boston University.

His research focus in in Quantum Tool Development. His laboratory focuses on table top-scale experiments, developing new quantum tools for precision measurements, and employing them to address key problems in fundamental and applied science. The work includes using nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers in diamond to perform magnetic imaging on the nanometer scale and study the fundamentals of statistical mechanics and many-body physics of interacting spin systems. His research work also searches for dark matter, using precision nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) techniques.

Sushkov is a graduate work at the University of California, Berkeley focused on precision atomic magnetometry and magnetic resonance. After earning his PhD in 2006, Alex moved to Yale University, where he worked on measurements of the Casimir effect and the search for the permanent electric dipole moment of the electron. He then moved to Harvard University, where his work focused on nanoscale magnetic resonance measurements with nitrogen-vacancy centers in diamond. Alex Sushkov’s research interests include precision experimental searches for ultra-light axion-like dark matter and other new fundamental physics, as well as nanoscale quantum sensing with nitrogen-vacancy centers in diamond.
