Hello, I am currently a research staff scientist with IBM Quantum in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Previously, I was a student at Berkeley and Caltech. My research interests are in theoretical computer science centered around quantum information and hardness of approximation. Recently, I've been thinking about the quantum PCP conjecture and the description complexity of quantum states.
