Namit Anand


\(\blacktriangleright\) Since 2024 I’m a Staff Scientist at NASA Ames’ Quantum AI Lab (QuAIL) and KBR. I’m a theoretical physicist interested in utilizing tools from quantum information and computation to understand quantum many-body phenomena.

\(\blacktriangleright\) In Summer 2022, I received my PhD in Physics from the University of Southern California under the (wonderful) supervision of Paolo Zanardi. I was fortunate to be coadvised by Todd Brun and Aaron Lauda. Before that, I received my Integrated Master of Science (BS-MS) in Physics from the National Institute of Science Education and Research, Bhubaneswar.

\(\blacktriangleright\) Some research areas that I’m currently interested in include: (i) thermalization in closed quantum systems, information scrambling, quantum chaos, many-body localization, (ii) quantum resource theories, in particular the resource theory of quantum coherence and its role in quantum algorithms. (iii) error mitigation for NISQ-devices. (iv) non-universal models of quantum computation such as Clifford group, matchgates, etc., (v) classical simulation of linear optics, (vi) shadow tomography.
