Jarrod McClean

Jarrod McClean
Alvarez Fellow

Short Bio

Jarrod McClean recieved his PhD in Chemical Physics from Harvard University where he studied as a Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellow.  His thesis research involved the interface between quantum computation, quantum chemistry, and numerical algorithms.  He is currently a Luis W. Alvarez fellow in Computing Sciences at Lawrence Berkeley National Labortory exploring quantum computation, beyond low-rank and sparse tensor approximations, and quantum chemistry.  More information on his research interests and background can be found at his website.
