About Me


I’m a PhD candidate in Theoretical Physics at Stanford, where I’m co-advised by Tom Devereaux and Xiaoliang Qi. In 2017 I graduated from Yale University, where I studied Physics, Math, and Philosophy. I also write for Physics World.

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 quantum phases of matter.

When I’m not doing or writing about physics, find me climbing rocks, doing origami, or brewing kombucha.
