I grew up in Syracuse NY, attending Manlius Pebble Hill school until graduation in 2010. I was fortunate to be able to take piano lessons from age 7, and take a wide variety of arts courses during my schooling, in addition to being given a strong foundation in science and mathematics. I continued on to the University of Rochester, where I completed my undergraduate studies in 2014, graduating with a B.S. in physics, and a B.A. in music (emphasis on jazz piano). I continued on into the physics department's graduate program at UR that same fall, where I am now a PhD candidate studying quantum measurement and dynamics under Prof. Andrew Jordan. I continue to play in several musical projects in the Rochester area, and remain engaged with the arts in any ways that I can. Other interests include hiking / backpacking, tennis, reading, and photography.
