I am a fourth year Computer Science PhD student at UC Berkeley. I study ways to optimize and implement programs for noisy quantum computers. Specifically, my research focuses on uncovering ways that machine learning can be leveraged to do various quantum program compilation tasks. These tasks range from finding minimal representations of quantum circuits, to ensuring that programs conform to restrictive, modern hardware. I am originally from the state of North Carolina. In my free time, I enjoy reading, college basketball, and the sport of powerlifting.
