I am a fourthyear PhD student at the University of Chicago, advised by Prof. Fred Chong. My research interests are in computer architectures, quantum algorithms, quantum information, and error correction. I build systems that enable efficient scheduling and mapping from highlevel circuits to noisy nearterm devices and design algorithms using tools from property testing, representation theory, and topology. I received the William Rainey Harper Dissertation Fellowship, one of UChicago's highest honors, for the 20202021 academic year. Currently, I am visiting Prof. Isaac Chuang at MIT under the IvyPlus Exchange Scholar Program in Spring and Summer 2020.
Before UChicago, I received my BS degrees in Computer Science and Physics from Carnegie Mellon University, where I was advised by Prof. Ryan O'Donnell.
