About Me

I am currently a DuBridge Postdoctoral Scholar at the Walter Burke Institute for Theoretical Physics at Caltech.

I received my PhD in the Harvard University Department of Physics under Mikhail D. Lukin. My research interests are at the interface of physics and computer science, touching on many topics in quantum information theory, quantum optics, and many-body physics. My contributions include analyzing quantum algorithms and architectures, as well as proving fundamental results in quantum complexity theory. I also work closely with experimentalists to develop practical schemes of quantum applications for current and near-term experimental implementations.

Current research topics include: quantum algorithms, optimization problems, (Hamiltonian) complexity theory, non-equilibrium physics, spin glasses, quantum advantages in experiments (esp. Rydberg atoms)
