about me

I am a Master's student at the Vermont Complex Systems Center. I'm passionate about understanding the mechanisms that govern our social, political, and economic systems, and hope that doing so will help us address problems that stem from our connectedness, including wealth inequality and political polarization.

I've previously worked at qBraid, a quantum computing company focused on accelerating the pace of quantum computing research. I've previously worked as a teacher at Fort Lauderdale High School, where I taught math and physics. I received my BA from Dartmouth in 2018, where I majored in physics and minored in human-centered design. I also completed a senior honors thesis under the supervision of James D. Whitfield.

In my free time, I am an avid pianist, I'm learning the guitar, and I enjoy the outdoors.
