Who I am: Theoretical computer science, applicable mathematics.
What I do: Quantum computing.
Theoretical computer science and mathematics are about proving theorems, which is what I (try to) do most of the time. With my research, I aim to contribute to realizing quantum computing within this decade. To demonstrate my results, I like to write computer code in the open-source mathematical computation programming language Julia (“Julia is the new MATLAB”). Apart from pure theory, I’m fond of Compiler Engineering (classical and hybrid-quantum/classical).My recent papers:
- On SciRate
- My ArXiv tag
- My ORCID stub will, at some point in the future 🙄, offer a selection of my favorite recent papers & preprints.
