I am an "It from Qubit" fellow sharing my time between University College London and Brandeis University. I received my Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin in 2015, under the supervision of Willy Fischler. Before joining the It from Qubit collaboration I was an NWO-VENI fellow at the University of Amsterdam, where I spent a total of four years. My research interests cover a variety of topics on the interplay between gravity and quantum information theory, including questions pertaining to the emergence and dynamics of spacetime, entanglement entropy, and quantum chaos.
