Dr. Muschik is an expert in the theory of quantum communication and quantum simulation. Quantum communication exploits the features of quantum mechanical systems for advantages in communication tasks, such as unbreakable security or significant reductions in the resources required to send a message. Quantum simulation uses one type of quantum system, over which one has complete control, to mimic the behaviour of another, where over control is limited or non existent. Quantum simulation has the potential to guide the development of new materials or complex molecules and expand our understanding of fundamental physics.
Dr. Muschik leads a theoretical quantum optics group based in the Department of Physics & Astronomy and the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo.
The group develops novel tools for investigating and engineering light-matter interactions with applications in the field of quantum information science. Their work involves close collaborations with experimental groups and focuses particularly on finding new protocols for realizing (i) quantum networks and (ii) quantum simulations of models from high energy physics.

The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
