Pooya RonaghDr. Ronagh’s research interests involve algorithmic aspects of quantum computation. He explores novel applications of quantum computation by designing and analysing quantum algorithms for solving computational challenges wherein the classical state of the art is costly machine learning and high-performance computing. The symbiotic relationship between classical and quantum computing is not only important in unlocking applications of quantum computers but also crucial in building them. Dr. Ronagh is therefore also interested in using optimization and control theory to improve the hybrid quantum-classical schemes used for quantum control, quantum error correction, and fault-tolerant quantum computation.
