Ancient History

Do we really need to go into that?

Recent History

I received my Bachelor’s in Physics from Caltech in 2012, and then migrated to UNM to work on getting my Ph. D. My research currently takes place through the Center for Quantum Information and Control at the University of New Mexico. More specifically, I am employed at Sandia National Laboratories where I work on problems related to quantum tomography.

About the Site

This site is the blend of a few frameworks for web development. I use Minimal Mistakes to handle the CSS and site design. To manage the actual site content, I write up the pages in Markdown and use Jekyll to output HTML pages. Processing is done using the kramdown processor, which is compatible with GitHub Pages. In order to keep the version(s) of the site correct, and thereby make it easy to make changes, I use git. The LaTeX on the site is rendered using the MathJax CDN.
