Hi, my name is Josiah Couch. I am studying physics with the Weinberg Theory Group in the Department of Physics at the University of Texas at Austin. I have had a lifelong fascination with science, mathematics, and technology, which has culminated in my decision to study theoretical physics. As a student in the theory group, I study the intersection of quantum information and quantum gravity in the context of the AdS/CFT correspondence. As a somewhat nerdy layperson, I am broadly interested in a variety of topics in science, technology, and beyond.
