about me

I am a Post-Doc in the group of Alan Aspuru-Guzik at University of Toronto. Before that I was doing my PhD (and 1year Postdoc) in Anton Zeilinger’s group in Vienna. I work on computer algorithms which find new designs for quantum optical experiments and soon hopefully for other systems as well.

You can send me e-Mails, I sometimes use Twitter, you can have a look at my google scholar account and at my recent preprints arXiv.

I developed computer programs which help us to inspire new type of quantum experiments, and which inspired new ideas and techniques. I am excited about the potential of computer-inspired and computer-augmented science, which requires one to understand how humans do science (for example, understand what one considers as creative or surprising).
My goal is to create an algorithm which helps us to uncover secrets of the Universe.
