I am a physics PhD student at CU Boulder. In 2023, I transferred from UC Santa Barbara to CU to pursue the research I am passionate about. Prior to UCSB, I was a PSI master's student at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics. My cohort was remarkable. For my undergraduate, I studied mathematics and physics at Harvey Mudd College in sunny Claremont, CA.

My research explores the fundamental physical limitations of efficient computation, as well as those esoteric features of quantum mechanics that plausibly enable a computational speedup. Details here. At the same time, I think seriously about a jumble of things in AI, metaphysics, and number theory. In Dyson's classification, I am more of a bird than a frog.
