Research Interests
Presently, my research focuses on the classical simulation of quantum systems and on various aspects of faulttolerant quantum computation. In the realm of fault tolerance, I've been investigating faulttolerant 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.
