Software developer, technical lead of Qiskit SDK


IBM Research Europe - United Kingdom Hursley, England


Open-source research software developer for the Qiskit Quantum SDK. Most of my work is public as a maintainer and core developer of Qiskit Terra, and as a key contributor to the design of the OpenQASM 3.0 language.

I work on quantum-circuit representations and compilation techniques on Qiskit Terra, including leading the efforts in this package to define and work with hybrid quantum–classical circuits (dynamic circuits). Before IBM, I received a PhD in trapped-ion quantum computing from Imperial College London under Florian Mintert, about resilient constructions for two-qubit entangling gates outside weak-coupling approximations and superposition coherence verification.
