About


I’m a PhD student in the Department of Applied Math and Theoretical Physics at Cambridge University, in my second year.

I’m interested in quantum statistical mechanics and quantum information theory; see here for my recent work.

Also, you can reach me here if you want to ask me a (presumably quantum-info related) question. I made that page mostly for the students of the 2017-2018 Quantum Information Theory part III course here at Cambridge; I’m not yet decided how much time I want to spent answering questions more generally, but for now I’m happy to field them at least.

I also made a video introducing quantum information theory (though it’s mostly just about information theory):

Many thanks to falcxne for allowing use of his songs “Said You Wouldn’t Change” (from the album Timbits III), “I Hate Homework (Interlude)” (from Timbits II) and “NYC (Interlude)” (from Timbits III); you can find these and more at https://falcxne.bandcamp.com/. And thanks to Phillipe Faist for creating the entropy zoo and allowing me to use it in the video. For more details on the continuity bounds mentioned, you can find a preprint here, which is joint work with my supervisor, Dr. Nilanjana Datta.
