Yihui Quek

Postdoctoral Researcher, Harvard University

The emergence of the first quantum devices will necessitate protocols for benchmarking and characterizing them, or using them to do simple calculations. Often pieced together from physical intuition but lacking rigorous justification, these protocols must be used with a pinch of caution. Bringing to bear notions developed in learning theory and complexity theory in settings that are relevant for physicists, Yihui's research aims to open the black box and shed the light of rigorous mathematical analysis on these near-term proposals.
