I am a second-year computer science Ph.D. student at the University of Chicago studying quantum computer systems with Fred Chong. Previously, I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a B.S. in physics and a minor in computer science.
My research interests can be described as low-level software optimizations that narrow the gap between existing far-from-ideal hardware and the future goal of large-scale fault-tolerant quantum computation. This includes work such as optimizing the performance of individual quantum logic gates, designing scalable and efficient device calibration routines, and modifying error correction circuits to account for typically-ignored imperfections of real devices. So far, I have worked on research in the areas of control pulse engineering, device calibration, circuit compilation, and high-radix computation. I have mostly focused on superconducting quantum hardware, but I am familiar with neutral atom and trapped ion architectures as well. My work is part of EPiQC, an NSF Expedition in Computing.
