I am a second year Computer Science Ph.D student at the University of Chicago, advised by Fred Chong studying quantum computer architectures. 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.

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.
