I’m a theoretical physicist studying quantum information and quantum gravity in Professor Raphael Bousso’s group. Most recently, I’ve been fascinated by thinking about how to use quantum computing to help tackle the black hole information paradox. I’m extremely grateful to be supported by the NSF.

Previously, I was at Stanford where I studied theoretical physics and computer science. While I was there, I did research at the intersection of machine learning and cosmology under Professor Risa Wechsler, interned at Google, co-taught “Python for Scientists”, and led the tutoring team at the Center for Teaching and Learning.

In my free time, I enjoy taking photographs, playing frisbee, and tweaking my text editor config.
