Research

My research focuses on the theory of quantum information and its applications to algorithms, complexity theory, and cryptography. Specific topics that I am currently interested in include quantum interactive proof systems, quantum information theory, and the theory of entanglement. I am also interested in algorithms, complexity theory, and theoretical computer science more generally.
