They/them, please! I'm a middle school high school student at UC Berkeley and a moderator on Quantum Computing SE.


Right now, I'm especially focused on reading about spontaneous parametric down conversion and am working on an experiment related to that - I've finished building a TEA laser, and am working on obtaining the crystals and other optics I need. I've recently finished the ideal half of a quantum computer simulator I'm working on - please feel free to try it out (it's on my github)! I'm working on adding stuff that will simulate noise and decoherence in the qubits.

I also recently fell down a delightful rabbit hole on shark intestines - turns out that the type of spiral intestine sharks have does not correlate to diet, so I'm teaching myself R and parts of phylogenetics to try to test different hypotheses for what the different types of spirals correlate with.


I always enjoy learning new things about Python - I've started reading recently about machine learning. I also read a lot of Tolkien (have a paper in review comparing Durin and King Arthur) and enjoy DMing for a D&D game I run. Currently reading Louis Menand's book The Metaphysical Club.
