I am a PhD student in Computer Science at UT Austin, where I am fortunate to have Scott Aaronson as my advisor. I am supported by an NDSEG fellowship. Previously, I was an undergrad in Mathematics with Computer Science at MIT.
I am broadly interested in quantum and classical complexity theory. Currently, much of my research focuses on (limitations of) quantum algorithms and (in)ability to apply classical algorithmic techniques in quantum computation.
On the side, I have a large interest in combination puzzles, especially Rubik's-type "twisty puzzles". I have designed more than a dozen unique 3D-printed twisty puzzles, all of which have been shared on the Twisty Puzzles forum, and most of which can be found in the Twisty Puzzles museum. Many of my designs are also available for download.
