I am a theoretical physicist, specializing in quantum information and quantum computation.  I received my B.A. in physics from Williams College in 2017.  In 2018, I will begin graduate study at Tufts University.

I currently study quantum computing, a computational paradigm that exploits the fundamental nature of small systems to efficiently perform tasks that are unfeasible by classical computation.  I have also investigated methods for quantifying entanglement in pairs and triples of qubits, and dabbled in foundational theory.
