Short Biography
My interdisciplinary research group is known as the, Quantum Complexity Science Initiative, which is comprised of students and research staff with backgrounds in physics, mathematics and computer science. Our work aims to understand what fundamentally separates quantum and stochastic systems and applies this knowledge to develop applications of quantum effects to technology, such as e.g. quantum enhanced computer algorithms to accelerate machine learning. In this regard, our research is increasingly focused on the emerging field that unites quantum information with complex network theory and machine learning.
My early work established the computational universality of specific quantum manybody ground states used in adiabatic quantum computing, and developed aspects of the theory of tensor network states. I have recently received several international awards for my work, including the Shapiro Fellowship in Mathematical Physics and I am an invited member of the Foundational Questions Institute (FQXi). In terms of community service, I'm on the editorial boards for several journals, including New Journal of Physics.
