Namit Anand


\(\blacktriangleright\) Since Fall 2022, I’m a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Quantum AI Lab (QuAIL) at NASA Ames Research Center and KBR.

\(\hookrightarrow\) Starting January 2024, I will be a Staff Scientist at QuAIL.

\(\blacktriangleright\) 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.

\(\blacktriangleright\) My research focusses on the interface between quantum information, quantum computation, and many-body theory. Specific topics include: (i) application of quantum information-theoretic tools to understand thermalization in closed quantum systems, information scrambling, quantum chaos, many-body localization, etc. (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.
