Applied Computing for Scientific Discovery

Research interest:  Quantum computing algorithms, Condensed matter physics

My current research involves developing novel algorithms for quantum computers to solve scientific problems and beyond. Due to the highly noisy and expensive nature of quantum devices, it is crucial to have a deep understanding of their hardware architecture to develop NISQ (noisy intermediate-scale quantum) algorithms. Thus, I am keen on collaborating with interdisciplinary teams to improve my knowledge of the device and develop algorithms that are resource-efficient. I am also interested in exploring other aspects of advanced numerical methods. I completed my Ph.D. in computational condensed matter physics at the University of Arizona, where I developed codes for the Path Integral Renormalization Group (PIRG) method to study superconductivity in two-dimensional materials.
