Daniel Ang is an experimental physicist. I am currently a QTC Scientist in the Walsworth Group at the Quantum Technology Center in the University of Maryland, where I lead an effort to develop quantum sensors based on nitrogen vacancy (NV) centers in diamond for directional detection of dark matter particles. I also contribute to other efforts in the Walsworth group to develop quantum sensors based on NVs and other platforms for a wide variety of applications in the physical sciences, life sciences, and industry.

Previously, I completed a PhD in atomic physics and precision measurement in the Gabrielse lab at Harvard University, where I made several important contributions to the the next generation ACME III experiment which is projected to measure the shape of the electron’s charge with an order of magnitude improvement in sensitivity.
