My research lies in the intersection of algebraic graph theory and quantum computation. Roughly speaking, I translate problems in quantum computation to problems on graphs, and tackle them using (mostly linear) algebraic methods. My interdisciplinary work on quantum walks and SIC-POVMs has been published on journals spanning a wide range of topics, including quantum information, combinatorics, algebra and physics. I have also coauthored an introductory book about discrete quantum walks on graphs and digraphs.

Prior to joining WPI, I was a postdoc fellow at Simon Fraser University, York University and Université de Montréal. I received my Ph.D. in Combinatorics and Optimization at the University of Waterloo with multiple thesis awards — the University Finalist for the Governor General's Gold Medal, the first place in the inaugural Mathematics Doctoral Prize competition, and the Outstanding Achievement in Graduate Studies designation.
