PhD student

Research Interests:

Quantum verification, Quantum complexity theory, Quantum Information Theory

Coming from a physics background, I firstly got involved in quantum information science by working on quantum Information theory (specifically Capacity of quantum channels) during my M.Sc. in Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran. As I decided to pursue my career in Quantum computer science, I joined QSL as a PhD student in 2023 under the supervision of Dr. Myrto Arapinis and Prof. Elham Kahefi. Currently I am working on two subjects: Quantum computational pseudorandomness, where we are looking for constructions for pseudorandom states and unitaries and their applications; And proof of quantumness, which is essentially finding novel and efficient ways for the verification of quantum supremacy in Intermediate scale quantum computers by utilizing interactive proofs.
