Hello! I am a PhD student at Chapman University, learning how to build a better qubit.
My background in mathematics and computer science initially introduced me to the field of quantum computing via Grover’s algorithm. I did some preliminary undergraduate studies on what aspects of quantum mechanics give Grover’s algorithm its quantum advantage.
Today, my interests have developed more towards the hardware that implements the qubit. In particular, I want to learn more about continuous measurement (especially weak measurement) and the engineering aspects of qubit construction. I also have a strong interest in quantum information, as it is the concept of physical information and the effects of measurement which first piqued my interest in all things quantum.
In my spare time, I love to hike, cook, and rant about the Landauer cost whenever given the chance.
