BACKGROUND & EXPERIENCE

PhD student at QuICS, UMD

I am a graduate student at the Joint Center for Quantum Information and Computer Science. I do research in quantum information theory and I am usually focused on quantum cryptography.  

Most of my background is in academic research. I have been doing some form of theoretical quantum information research since late 2014 and I also have brief experience in experimental astrophysics.

ABOUT ME

I have always had a wide interest in academic fields, from math and physics to linguistics and philosophy. I try to explore different topics constantly and I seek to perform interdisciplinary research for that reason.
