QuICS Profile




I am also an affiliate
faculty in Mathematics and AMSC and an adjunct in Computer Science and UMIACS.
Research:
I
work on quantum information processing, a field where a
number of different disciplines and styles of thinking converge. My
particular focus is on quantum cryptography, where proving the security of new
protocols often involves some creative and interesting mathematics. I am
interested more generally in applications of higher mathematics to theoretical
computer science.

Program Chair for QCRYPT 2021;
Program Committee Member for QCRYPT 2023,
QIP 2023, TQC 2022, QCRYPT 2018, QIP 2016, TQC 2016, QCRYPT 2016.
