I am a second-year Ph.D. student studying theoretical computer science at The University of Chicago, where I am advised by David Cash and supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. My primary research interests are in cryptography, complexity theory, and mathematical logic more broadly.
I studied math as an undergraduate, where I focused in dynamical systems and geometry. I continue to maintain an interest in geometry and dynamics, especially in areas related to dynamical billiards and ergodic theory.
My email is the concatenation of sam and e with @uchicago.edu.
