Hello, I am a first year PhD student at UC Berkeley in the EECS Department studying CS Theory. I am advised by Umesh Vazirani. I got my Bachelor's in 2017 from Caltech where I worked on research problems with Thomas Vidick.

My research interests are in theoretical computer science centered around quantum information and hardness of approximation. I am currently interested in exploring method of securely interacting with quantum provers and adversaries as well as quantum supremacy.
