I am a third-year undergraduate student at the University of Chicago studying
physics and computer science. I am interested in applying physics and
optimization to build efficient systems and processes. I am currently advised
My research focuses on using control theory to improve experimental quantum

Unlike classical computers that are controlled digitally,
quantum computers are controlled
using analog control pulses (typically electromagnetic waves).
Quantum Optimal Control
finds control pulses that achieve specific transformations on a quantum
system while satisfying experimental constraints. The main contribution of this tool
is that it can model the decoherence of the quantum system, enabling
experimentalists to find control pulses that work in spite of the system's decay.
Uncommon Hacks is a student organization at UChicago that hosts hack-a-thons
to foster a tech community on campus. I serve as the tech lead for UH. I oversee
a team of developers and graphic designers to build everything UH puts on the web.
Our hackathons are typically attended by 300 students and our websites reach
thousands of users.
