Areas of research:
If you are interested in working with me as a PhD student, please submit an application directly to my department at the University of Waterloo and indicate that you would like to be supervised by me. Perimeter Institute is committed to diversity within its community and I welcome applications from underrepresented groups.
I am interested in quantum algorithms, classical simulation of quantum computers, and the complexity of quantum many-body systems.
