Kaushik Seshadreesan

Department of Informatics and Networked Systems, School of Computing and Information
Ph.D., Louisiana State University, 2015

Kaushik’s research broadly lies in quantum information science and technologies, spanning quantum information theory, quantum sensing, quantum communications, and quantum computation. He is currently primarily interested in quantum communication networks. As quantum technologies continue to grow and mature, interconnecting quantum gadgets such as quantum sensors or quantum computers is key to realizing their full potential. This requires the ability to communicate quantum information reliably and efficiently over such quantum networks. Kaushik is interested in addressing research questions and challenges that lie across the different layers of a full quantum networking stack towards realizing the future quantum internet.
