I am a graduate student completing a PhD in Electrical Engineering at the University of Alberta where I am studying quantum computers. In particular, I am studying the initialization of spin-qubits through quantum transport simulations.

This website serves as a portfolio of some projects that I have worked on in my spare time. However, I may also include an occasional less-technical guide. Some projects and write-ups are currently works-in-progress, which I aim to update as I find time.
