PhD 2014, University of Chicago


I received my PhD in 2014 from the University of Chicago. I am broadly interested in the physics of collective phenomena, and most of my research could be classified under quantum or classical condensed matter physics. Lately, I am most interested in the physics of learning, which is an approach to studying modern machine learning using techniques and intuition drawn from physics.
