### quantum gravity

gauge theory and quantum gravity (hand-written notes)

- an overview of a quantum gravity – focusing on the graviton propagator and developing the gauge theoretic formulation with the Chern-Simons action
- these notes were used to give a blackboard lecture as a final project for graduate quantum field theory I at Syracuse University

an accelerated metropolis algorithm for lattice quantum gravity simulations (slides)

- these beamer slides detail work I did on a novel version of the metropolis algorithm
- part of a talk given at an undergraduate research festival at Syracuse University
