I am a postdoc at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences. Starting in August 2024, I will be a Junior Fellow at the Society of Fellows at Harvard and an IAIFI Fellow at MIT.

I completed my PhD at New York University in 2024, working with Kyle Cranmer, Yann LeCun, and Eric Vanden-Eijnden, as well as some folks at the Flatiron Institute's Center for Computational Quantum Physics (CCQ).

Previously, I was a graduate fellow at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics thinking about quantum stuff (fields, many-body systems) and machine learning.

I completed my MPhil in Physics at the University of Cambridge in 2018 and my A.B. in Physics and History at Harvard University in 2017.
