__________
I am a thirdyear PhD student at the University of Chicago, advised by Fred Chong. My research interest is 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.
Before UChicago, I received my BS degrees in Computer Science and Physics from Carnegie Mellon University.
