Theoretical Quantum Computing

Project ID: 162

Supervisor(s): Susan Coppersmith

I am a theoretical physicist working on quantum computing in silicon and also on applying concepts from quantum information theory to topics in dark matter and in neutrinoflavor evolution.  I have conducted research in condensed matter, focusing on the fundamental nature of systems that are far from thermal equilibrium. My theories explore the unifying phenomena that are observed in areas as diverse as population biology, biomineralization, granular materials, and superfluidity. I work closely with experimentalists, I've made important contributions to the development of quantum dot qubits in silicon/silicon-germanium heterostructures.
