I am currently a postdoctoral research associate at Dartmouth College, where I am working under Profs. Lorenza Viola & James Whitfield. In June 2021, I completed my Ph.D. in Physics at Boston College, where I worked on Fermi liquids and strongly correlated fermions. At Dartmouth, I am currently pursuing problems in many-body quantum simulatability, novel instabilities in quadratic bosonic Hamiltonians, and unconventional extensions of linear optical quantum computation.
