Hi, I'm Spencer. I'm a fifth-year CS PhD candidate at Cornell University.

My current research interests are in theoretical cryptography, particularly lattice-based cryptography and lattice algorithms, but in the past I've also worked on learning theory and causality projects. I'm extremely fortunate to be advised by Noah Stephens-Davidowitz.

Outside of research, I play ultimate frisbee for Cornell, and I'm playing the long game with progressive bodyweight training and meditation. I also like to write code.

In past lives, I studied computer science and physics at the University of Washington, and had several eye-opening internships: two with Microsoft's Quantum Architectures and Computing group, and a summer at Jane Street Capital.
