Research Interests

Quantum computing: what can quantum computers do, what can’t they do, and the structure that creates those differences.

Specific areas I’m interested in include quantum computational complexity, algorithms, optimization, and connections to applications.

Many of my interests are theoretical, but I also find motivation in efforts to develop and apply quantum computers.
