Research Interests

I am a Researcher and the manager of the Quantum Architectures and Computation Group (QuArC) at Microsoft Research in Redmond, WA. I am passionate about quantum computation and determining how to better solve problems on a quantum computer.  My research focuses on quantum algorithms and how to implement them on a quantum device, from how to code them in a high-level programming language, to how to optimize the resources they require, to how to implement them in hardware.  Our team also works on designing a scalable, fault-tolerant software architecture for translating a high-level quantum program into a low-level, device-specific quantum implementation, which we call LIQUi|>; (pronounced "liquid", language-integrated quantum operations).  We work in collaboration with Microsoft Station Q, Microsoft Research's center for topological quantum computation. 

Other research interests include machine learning algorithms, both classical and quantum. I am interested in learning to rank algorithms, Web search and information retrieval, including features and training methods, and the dynamics of the Web and its users over time.

I received my Ph.D. with Honors in Computer Science from Columbia University in 2006 under Dr. Alfred Aho and Dr. Joseph Traub.  Previously, I worked with Dr. Isaac Chuang at MIT, Dr. John Preskill at Caltech, and Dr. David DiVincenzo and Dr. Barbara Terhal at IBM Research.  I received a B.A. in Mathematics, with a minor in Computer Science and French, from Princeton University in 2001.
