I am a postdoctoral researcher focusing on string theory at the Lorentz
Institute, Leiden University. I joined the group of Koenraad Schalm and
Jan Zaanen in 2016.
I obtained my PhD in 2016 from the University of British Columbia, under the supervision of Prof. Joanna Karczmarek.
My thesis was titled "Geometry from Quantum Mechanics: Entanglement, Energy Conditions and the Emergence of Space".
I obtained my B.Sc. (Joint Honours in Math and Physics) from McGill University in 2011.
My research focuses mostly on the connection between quantum
information (entanglement entropy and related quantities) and the
structure of space-time. More specifically, I am interested in
multipartite entanglement, the time evolution of entanglement entropy
and constraints on bulk metrics from entanglement inequalities. In the
past, I have also worked on the structure of noncommutative geometry
based on matrix models.
