I am a Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at University of Victoria. My research group focuses on how to design quantum hardware and software with less noise. We are implementing quantum algorithms in the current generation of noisy intermediate-scale quantum devices (NISQ), and developing methods to benchmark as well as mitigate the impact of noise in them.
I am also interested in making quantum theory more accessible to people with different expertise. At UVic I teach the course "Introductory Quantum Computing" which is targeted at second-year science and engineering students with no previous exposure to quantum theory.
