Jacob is currently exploring the design of Quantum Optical Neural Networks for potential applications throughout the subfields of quantum information science. In general, he is fascinated by quantum mechanics and wishes to exploit its principles in the design of future technologies that yield positive impacts for society. Jacob is a driven, detail-oriented individual who wishes to one day aid in the growth of others through teaching. Before he found physics, Jacob was a successful child actor having voiced main characters in many cartoons including Catboy in PJ Masks. He maintains an interest in the film industry, enjoys snowboarding, and is an avid fan of the Toronto Raptors.
