I am a Research Assistant Professor at the InQubator for Quantum Simulation at the University of Washington, Seattle. Bridging the gap between condensed matter, high energy and nuclear physics and quantum information science, my research involves collaborating with University, National Lab and Industry partners to co-design and develop quantum hardware and algorithms and exploring fundamental physics problems.
