About Me

Interests: Physics, Research, Using Data For Insights,Problem Solving, Social Equity

Hobbies: Socialising, Marathons, Learning, Creating, Not Getting Covid


I am a curious person who values community. I am fascinated with data, and how to make empirical predictions and inferences from that data. My curiousity and passion regarding data draws me to all aspects of science.

Education has always been a passion of mine, and I have taken every opportunity to take courses in public speaking, to teach, and to perform outreach. This has recently cumulated in publishing the first USA high school quantum computing book open-source with Springer. For more, see my Education tab.

In non-research settings, I have also used my data science/ML skills in industry, while working as a data scientist/quantitative researcher on the properitary desk in the crypocurrency exchange Kraken.

Research shows that the most important quality for productivity is feeling valued. I invest energy to ensure that I create an enviroment that increases everyone's happiness and productivity. I care about social equity, and work to ensure there is upward social mobility and an increase in diversity, inclusion, and retention.

My interests outside of science include not getting covid, socialising, volunteering, exploring digital privacy in the misinformation age, being zero-waste to reduce my enviromental impact (composting, clean energy, not consuming plastic), and hiking.
