About me:

I'm a Bloch Postdoctoral Fellow in quantum science and engineering at Stanford. My research focuses on quantum error correction.
I work with the teams of Mary Wootters (CS/EE) and Patrick Hayden (Physics).

I received a Ph.D. in Physics from the Université de Sherbrooke in Québec, Canada. I was supervised by David Poulin.
