+Hi, I'm Austin Adams, a PhD student at the [Georgia Institute of
Technology][1] studying quantum computing from a computer architecture
perspective. I am co-advised by [Tom Conte][11] and [Jeff Young][12], and you
can find my publications [listed here][5].
-I graduated from Georgia Tech in 2018 with a Bachelor of Science in
-Computer Science. Previously, I had attended [Kennesaw State
-University][3] for two years, one of which was full time in my senior
-year of high school through the [Dual Enrollment Honors Program][4].
+I am particularly interested in architecture and compilation techniques for ion
+trap quantum computers and hybrid quantum--classical programming. I have
+experience hacking on both the [Q#][15] compiler and the [QCOR][13]/[XACC][14]
+compilation framework(s).
-The highlight of my time as an undergraduate was working as the head
-teaching assistant for CS 2110, the intro to computer architecture
-course at Georgia Tech. When I wasn't answering emails, I spent a bunch
-of time writing autograders for [digital logic circuits][6], assembly
-code, malloc() implementations, and even [Gameboy Advance DMA][8].
-Here's some [praise from student evaluations][9].
+I graduated from Georgia Tech in 2018 with a Bachelor of Science in Computer
+Science. As an undergrad, I worked as the head teaching assistant for CS 2110,
+the undergraduate intro to computer architecture course at Georgia Tech where I
+wrote a [bunch][6] [of][17] [autograders][8].
+In 2022, I also completed my Master of Science in Computer Science from Georgia
+Tech. My master's thesis was titled [_Enabling a Programming Environment for an
+Experimental Ion Trap Quantum Testbed_][16]. During my master's, I was the head
+TA for CS 6290, the graduate intro to computer architecture course at Georgia
+Tech that covers topics such as branch prediction and out-of-order execution.
+Here's some [praise from student evaluations][9] across all my time TAing.
+Between undergrad and grad school, I worked for [Amazon][10] in Seattle,
+Washington, for about 2 years on some backend retail code.
-After graduation, I worked for [Amazon][10] in Seattle, Washington, for
-a little under 2 years on a great team who maintained bulk product
-uploads to Vendor Central. I haven't worked on programming projects too
-much lately, but you can see some of my past projects on my [projects
