Graduate student studying mathematical foundations of computer science
I am a PhD student in the CS Theory group at the University of Colorado Boulder. My broad interest is computational complexity of algorithms with a focus on quantum computing. Alex Kolla is my advisor and she would love to (dis/)prove the Unique Games Conjecture, please reach out if you have any leads! Teaching is my main passion and I have taught and helped develop an undergraduate quantum computing course that is cross-listed between our CS and physics department.
As an undergraduate, I studied mathematics at the University of Denver while also pursuing minors in computer science, physics, and psychology. Between school I spent a few years as a software engineer at Nasdaq developing data-driven real-time risk management systems.
