Ph.D. Student

Department of Computer Science

Princeton University

I am a final year Computer Science Ph.D. student at Princeton University in Professor Margaret Martonosi‘s group. My research interests include hybrid quantum-classical computing and modular quantum architectures.

Previously, I worked with Professor Jungsang Kim at Duke University on ion trapping experiments, and James B. Duke Professor Alfred Goshaw at Duke University in the field of high energy physics.

I am a member of the national Sigma Pi Sigma physics honor society. Outside of research and academics, I am a huge fan of basketball and love to travel.
