My research focus is on quantum information theory, an
interesting field that has a convergence of ideas
from computer science, mathematics, and physics. The main
theme of my research is developing mathematical tools
to solve problems in quantum communication and computation.
I run a research
group on quantum information processing (with
My graduate work was in pure mathematics. I wrote my dissertation
on sheaf theory in characteristic p.
Here is a set of talk slides on robust
random number generation. (Versions of this talk were given
at QIP 2014 and STOC 2014.)
