Keenan Pepper is third year grad student in physics at the University of California, Berkeley. He is from Tallahassee, Florida where he got his undergrad degree (physics and math) from Florida State University.

Keenan is starting to work on superconducting quantum computing research, specifically sources of 1/f noise in flux qubits. That seems like the most likely topic for his PhD thesis.

One of Keenan's two major hobbies is playing Balinese gamelan music with Gamelan Sekar Jaya. Sometimes he gets a craving for kotekan which just can't be denied. Keenan also enjoys many other kinds of music, especially those that use tunings other than the Western standard of 12-tone equal temperament.

Keenan's other major hobby is hang gliding with the Berkeley Hang Gliding Club.

Keenan considers himself a staunch libertarian but thinks the Libertarian Party can be pretty silly sometimes.

Keenan uses and advocates free software, to a degree some might call extreme. He uses Ubuntu GNU/Linux and the only non-free software currently on his computer is the firmware for his wireless card and the Flash plugin, because they have no working, free alternatives yet.

The paper by Ardini/Kidd/Anton 1985 on the compton effect being a doppler shift. Do you have it. Send it to amanbirgrewal@gmail.com. Thanks.
