My research interests are in quantum information theory and quantum computation. These interests include Shannon theory, coding theory, cryptography, algorithms, complexity theory, topological quantum computation, and general aspects of quantum information science such as the study of entanglement and entropy. I am particularly interested in applications of mathematics to these areas, such as representation theory, topology, and algebraic geometry. I received my Ph.D. from Stanford and have since been a postdoc at McGill University in Montréal and at Caltech. I am currently on a Feynman Fellowship at Los Alamos, where I work in the Center for Nonlinear Studies.
