Research Summary

Our research is concerned with Quantum Advantage: what Applications/Problems can Quantum Computing be used for to advantage over any other form of computing (e.g. classical). As such we are interested in Applications, Algorithms, implementations and Software Engineering and Optimization, and also Hardware/Software Co-Design.  We utilize quantum computing simulation, real quantum hardware, and also classical algorithms and compute to serve as the benchmark comparisons.
