I started my research activity with a PhD and a Postdoc in quantum chaos. Subsequently I joined Hitachi and switched fields, working on machine learning applications, compilation algorithms, and hardware designs for CMOS annealers.
Recent Research projects
I recently joined our Cambridge Laboratory to work on quantum computing and algorithms.
