I work on novel applications for quantum computers and on assesssing/benchmarking their properties and performance. In particular, I work on how to model and simulate the behaviour of physical systems inside quantum computers and on harnessing quantum algorithms to accelerate the inference of properties of these physical systems. This leads to applications such as accelerated inference of structure and trends in high dimensional time-series data, design of interactive quantum agents which are deployable towards reinforcement learning and sequence-to-sequence modelling tasks. It also leads to benchmarking of quantum computers and quantum memory based on capacity to reproduce desired input-output relation behaviour.
