I’m a Physics PhD candidate at Duke University, working as a theorist in Brown Lab. I finished my undergrad in Stanford University.

I am excited about building quantum computers and the physics behind it! My research interest is in quantum control, quantum error correction, and quantum simulation.

Besides physics, I enjoy stand-up comedy and basketball (GSW back to CHAMPS!!).
