My research interests lie somewhere at the intersection of quantum information and computation, condensed matter physics, and statistical physics. Most recently, I have examined fundamental speed limits on quantum information processing. I am also interested in quantum foundations and the mathematics of quantum mechanics.


  1. Investigating the limits of randomized benchmarking protocols
  2. Quantum Speed Limits for Quantum Information Processing Tasks


  1. Speed Limits for Quantum Control of Local Spin Systems (SQuInT 2017)


  1. The Jones polynomial and topological quantum computation (final project for CS 294)
  2. Lower bound on quantum query complexity (and a bit more) – see here for other notes from CS 294
  3. Bell’s theorem
  4. PSI masters essay on magic state computation and the stabilizer formalism
