Originally from Connecticut
Bachelor of Science from Caltech in 2013
Undergraduate research with Geoffrey Blake in 2011 researching ab-initio quantum computation of THz vibrational modes to complement the lab’s experimental research in terahertz spectroscopy.
Internship at Pfizer in 2012 developing cheminformatic tools for medicinal and computational chemists.
Currently writing software at Rigetti Computing.
Taught (TA-ed) intro chem. lab (Caltech, 2011), the Caltech p-chem series: quantum mechanics, spectroscopy, and stat. mech. (2012-2013), and Stanford stat. mech. and thermo classes (2014).
I think computation should have a greater emphasis in undergraduate instruction and worked with the Stanford chem curriculum chair to develop matlab exercises for undergraduate p-chem classes (2013).
Enjoy programming in Python, C++, C#, and Mathematica. Can program in (but may not necessarily enjoy) many others.
Hobbies include flying light aircraft (private pilot since 2010), jamming on my keyboard (the musical kind), and mario kart (preferably double dash).
