About me

I'm an Associate Professor in the Pure Math department at the University of Waterloo, and a member of the Institute for Quantum Computing.

Research interests

I work on the mathematics of quantum information and computation. Previously I worked in Lie theory and algebraic combinatorics, and I still do some work in these areas. For more information, see my research page, papers, or talks.

Teaching and advising

I've been working on turning my notes for PMATH 343 at Waterloo into a book called Linear algebra and quantum probability.

For information about graduate and undergraduate research opportunities, see my teaching page.


I have a podcast and a Youtube channel. Aside from this, I don't have much of a presence on the internet (in particular, I don't use social media). I sometimes get mistaken for other Slofstras on the internet. If it's not mentioned on this website, it's probably not me.
