Presently, my research focuses on the classical simulation of quantum systems and on various aspects of fault-tolerant quantum computation. In the realm of fault tolerance, I've been investigating fault-tolerant quantum gate sets, quantum error correcting codes (particularly LDPC and surface codes), thresholds for fault tolerant quantum computing, state preparation, and state distillation. In the future, I would additionally like to get involved in the work being done on passive quantum error correction, quantum computing architectures, and quantum algorithms for the simulation of quantum chemistry.
And, frankly, I appreciate any excuse to learn about some aspect of how the world works.
