Information for Prospective Students and Postdocs

If you are interested in working with me, please read the relevant section of this page before getting in touch. You can learn more about my research via my website. In particular, you can get a feel for my current interests by looking at my recent papers and talks.

Opportunities may also be available to work with other QuICS Fellows and Affiliate Fellows.

Graduate Students

I am currently seeking outstanding graduate students to work with me at the Joint Center for Quantum Information and Computer Science (QuICS). If you are interested in graduate study in quantum computing and you have a strong mathematical background, please consider applying to Maryland. You may apply through the following programs:

Program requirements and the application process are described at the above links. When applying, please indicate quantum computing as an area of interest and describe your background in this area.

You are welcome to email me to let me know of your interest, but this is not required. To be considered, you must apply directly through one of the relevant programs.

Postdoctoral Scholars

The Joint Center for Quantum Information and Computer Science (QuICS) offers Hartree Fellowships to outstanding postdoctoral researchers. To be considered for these positions, please consult the job posting on the QuICS website and follow the instructions there. You are welcome to contact me to indicate your interest, but applications must be made through QuICS. Applications are normally accepted in September through November for positions to begin in the following summer or fall.


I occasionally have positions available for undergraduate research projects on quantum information. Candidates should have a strong mathematical background and ideally should have at least basic exposure to quantum mechanics or quantum information. At present, I am only offering internships through the CAAR REU program. These internships occur during the summer and are typically available only to students at US-based institutions. To be considered, you should apply directly to the program.

Unfortunately I am currently unable to offer internships to high school students or to non-REU undergraduate students, or to supervise visiting graduate students, either remotely or in person.
