I am a theoretical physicist working in quantum technology and open-source software. I am the Chief Technology Officer of Unitary Fund, a non-profit organization that performs in-house research in quantum tech and supports open-source software projects.
At Unitary Fund, I lead the technical staff (Unitary Labs), which performs research in quantum computing developing open-source software. We have two main projects: Mitiq, a Python quantum error mitigation toolkit, and Metriq, a platform for the community-driven benchmarking of quantum computing systems.
I have been a visiting scientist at the University of Milan, Italy and at RIKEN, Japan’s national lab. Previously, I was a postdoctoral research scientist at RIKEN, Japan, where I worked in the Theoretical Quantum Physics Laboratory. I hold a PhD in Physics from the University of Southampton, UK.
