about me


I am an FWF Erwin-Schrödinger Postdoctorial Fellow in the group of Alan Aspuru-Guzik at University of Toronto and Vector Institute for Artificial Intelligence. Before that I was doing my PhD (and 1year Postdoc) in Anton Zeilinger’s group in Vienna.

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

I am excited about the potential of computer-inspired and computer-augmented science, and how we can use algorithms in a more “creative” way. It requires to understand how humans do science (for example, understand what one considers as creative or surprising). I have created programs for designing quantum experiments and inspiring novel ideas for quantum technologies (several of these computer-inspired ideas have been implemented in laboratories). Now I am seeking ways to apply these ideas in chemistry and quantum computers, and exploit tool from modern artificial intelligence research. I also develope semantic network of science, and use machine learning technique to extract potential new directions of research.

Ultimately, I want to create algorithms which helps us to uncover secrets of the Universe.
