Chancellor's Fellow in quantum computing at the School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh

Research Interests:

Quantum learning theory

Quantum cryptography

Quantum information, foundations

Mina is a Chancellor's Fellow (UK equivalent of tenure-track assistant professor) at the School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh, and at Quantum Software Lab. Before that, she was a senior postdoctoral researcher at the University of Edinburgh and a recipient of the QUICS Hartree Fellowship from the Joint Center for Quantum Information and Computer Science in Maryland. She received her PhD from the University of Edinburgh under the supervision of Elham Kashefi and Myrto Arapinis, with the title "Unclonability and Quantum Cryptanalysis: From Foundations to Applications". She completed her M.Sc. and B.Sc. in physics at Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran.

Her research covers three main areas that link quantum information and quantum computing to cryptography and learning theory. More specifically she works on: quantum learning theory and machine learning, quantum cryptography, and quantum information and foundations. Her research area broadly covers In the big picture, her research aims to establish connections between diverse disciplines within computer science, physics, and mathematics, to help us tackle fascinating theoretical problems and explore innovative applications for both existing and future quantum technologies.
