My research interests involve development of quantum computing algorithms, error correction and mitigation techniques, and numerical simulators of quantum systems using high-performance computing on next-generation high-performance supercomputers. The recent projects include development of quantum chemistry and combinatorial optimization quantum algorithms for modern quantum computers from IBM and D-Wave.
I am a principal project specialist at the Computational Science Division at Argonne National Laboratory and a scientist in the Department of Computer Science at University of Chicago Consortium for Advanced Science and Engineering (UChicago CASE). I am also a senior member of IEEE society, affiliated member of Enabling Practical-scale Quantum Computing (EPiQC), which is an NSF Expedition project and a member of Chicago Quantum Exchange. I received PhD in Physical Chemistry program from Iowa State University in the Mark Gordon's quantum chemistry group. After graduation, I became a postdoctoral fellow at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and worked in the NWChem group. Later, I joined the Nobel Prize winner Dr. Martin Karplus’ group at Harvard University and Université de Strasbourg.
