**About me**

I’m Brandon, a master’s student in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics at the Colorado School of Mines. I obtained my BS in Computer Science at the Colorado School of Mines.

I am grateful to be advised by Dr. Lincoln Carr and co-advised by Dr. Cecilia Diniz Behn at Mines.

This fall, I am visiting graduate researcher at the Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM).

**Research**

My research interests lie broadly at the intersection of quantum computing and quantum many-body physics. I am particularly interested in classical machine learning for quantum systems, and quantum algorithms for discrete optimization. In particular, I enjoy working on graph problems.

My work is supported by the NSF-NRT Quantum Engineering Fellowship through the Quantum Engineering Program at the Colorado School of Mines (CSM).
