I am the CEO, President and Co-Founder of softwareQ Inc, and a senior researcher at the Institute for Quantum Computing. I am also collaborating on quantum risk assessment with evolutionQ Inc.

I am involved in the CryptoWorks21 Quantum-Safe Cryptographic Infrastructure Program and I am a member of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) Quantum-Safe Cryptography Standardization Group.

I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a PhD in Theoretical Physics. My advisor was Robert B. Griffiths.
