I am a second-year Ph.D. student in theoretical computer science at Princeton University where I’m fortunate to be co-advisorsed by Professors Ran Raz and Mark Zhandry.

My research interests lie in the areas of quantum information, cryptography, and complexity theory, and more generally at the intersections of physics, information, and computation.

In the past (before starting my Ph.D.), I have also done research in electrical engineering, experimental physics, machine learning, and computational neuroscience.

I am a co-founder and the core maintainer of TigerPath, a web app now used by thousands of Princeton undergraduate students to plan their four-year schedules. It was written about in the Daily Princetonian.

I am also a sometimes-contributor to the open source PyTorch machine learning framework. I’ve refactored and written code for PyTorch’s spatial transformer module, which is used in various applications in image registration, optical flow estimation, and other deep computer vision tasks.

I am very friendly, so feel free to reach out to me at
