I am currently a research scientist at the Duke Quantum Center (DQC) at Duke University and will join the faculty as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin and a Fellow of the Advanced Micro Devices Chair in Computer Engineering, starting in August 2023. Currently, I am interested in a wide array of topics including quantum compilation, logic synthesis, and architectural design for near-term and fault tolerant quantum computers among others.

I am seeking graduate students interested in a broad range of quantum computing architecture subjects. Please email me here if interested. Please see UT Austin's admissions page here for more information.

Prior to joining Duke, I earned my Ph.D in computer science at the University of Chicago where I was advised by Fred Chong studying quantum computer architectures. Prior to the University of Chicago, I received a B.S. in Mathematics and Chemistry and a B.S. in Computer Science both at the University of Notre Dame, where I worked with Graham Lappin and Peter Kogge.
