### Research Interests:

**Quantum Computation and Many-Body Theory **

I am a a quantum condensed matter theorist with a particular interest in topics arising at the intersection of quantum computation and many-body theory. My research interests include strongly correlated quantum phases, topological order, spin glasses, many-body localization, quantum optical platforms for simulation and computation, quantum satisfiability and typical-case complexity. Most recently, I have been primarily focused on exploring interacting localization effects in dynamical systems and on characterizing generic constraint satisfaction problems
