I currently have a postdoctoral position at the Instituto de Matematica Interdisciplinar at Universidad Complutense Madrid. I am a member of the Mathematics and Quantum Information research group. I am interested in how ideas from operator space theory can be applied to problems in quantum information. I am also interested in operator algebras and how ideas from harmonic analysis on groups can be extended to locally compact quantum groups.
Before coming to Madrid, I was a graduate student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. My thesis advisor was Professor Zhong-Jin Ruan and my thesis title was "Noncommutative L_p-spaces Associated with Locally Compact Quantum Groups". While at UIUC, I had the pleasure of teaching in a variety of formats and was awarded the Math Department's Brahana TA award for exemplary teaching.
