I am interested in quantum information and nonequilibrium statistical mechanics and thermodynamics. Most recently, I have examined fundamental speed limits on quantum information processing. I am also interested in aspects of quantum foundations.


  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)
  2. Entropy Production in Active Matter (UC Berkeley Physics grad seminar)


  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
