Welcome! I am an assistant professor of physics at UC Santa Cruz. I am interested in various aspects of quantum information and quantum gravity, especially black holes and quantum cosmology. You can find out more about my past research and teaching by exploring this website. To read about some of my current focus see this popular-level article I wrote for Scientific American.
Besides physics and education, my primary passions are reading (Gogol, Vonnegut), sports (basketball, water polo, tennis) and music (hip hop, rock).
