About Me








I’m a first year graduate student at Stanford, pursuing a PhD in Theoretical Physics. I recently completed my bachelor’s of science at Yale University, where I studied Physics, Math, and Philosophy. I see Physics as the framework of our universe, an effort to make order out of chaos. It helps me to find meaning.

My passion for physics fuels my research on quantum information, and its connections to condensed matter physics. It also gets me involved in a ton of cool projects in machine learning, image processing, and even writing a Quantum Computing framework for the Wolfram language!

As an undergraduate, I conducted research at CERN as part of the Yale ATLAS High Energy Physics Group, at the Yale Quantum Institute, and at the illustrious Institute for Quantum Computing in Waterloo, Canada. Who knows where physics will take me next!

In my free time, you might find me rock climbing, shooting hoops friends, or reading a Kurt Vonnegut novel. When I’m not thinking about the quantum world, I play the acoustic guitar and love nothing more than spending time with my family!
