As a current MSc student in Mathematics and the Foundations of Computer Science, my dissertation examines mathematical generalizations of the spectral presheaf, a key tool in the topos approach to quantum computer science. Other research interests include computational geometry, graph theory, and tile self-assembly, which was the topic of my Senior Honors Thesis at Tufts University. In Fall 2013, I will begin my PhD in Algorithms, Combinatorics, and Optimization at Georgia Institute of Technology, based in the College of Computing.
