Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics

I am a Research Associate at the University of Cambridge, advised by Sergii Strelchuk and Tom Gur.

Previously I was a postdoc at CWI (Amsterdam) advised by Jop Briët, and member of the quantum computing group QuSoft. Before that, I was a PhD student in Applied Mathematics at the University of Cologne, advised by Frank Vallentin and Fernando de Oliveira Filho.

I obtained my Master in Mathematics at IMPA advised by Roberto Imbuzeiro Oliveira, and completed the Cycle Ingénieur (Bachelor + Master) at École Polytechnique.


Research interests

I have fairly broad research interests distributed around theoretical computer sciencequantum computing and combinatorics.

Recently my research has been aimed at understanding the true extent of the power of quantum computation, exploring when it can offer significant speedup compared to classical computers and when it cannot. In particular, I wish to elucidate the relationship between large quantum speedups and the symmetries or structural properties of the problems in consideration.
