I attended undergrad at the University of Arkansas, getting a B.S in Physics and Math. I then received my Ph.D. from Michigan State University in Nuclear Physics. Following that I completed two postdoctoral positions at the University of Tennessee and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. I am a member of the American Physical Society and American Chemical Society. My current research is centered at the intersection of nuclear physics and quantum computing, both simulating small but relevant systems to chemistry and nuclear physics and investigating avenues and algorithms that will be useful in the fault tolerant era. I am focused on methods of characterization and mitigation of sources of error on current quantum machines.
