Shruti Puri, former postdoc in the physics department and now an assistant professor in applied physics, is leading Yale’s participation in the new Quantum Leap Challenge Institute for Robust Quantum Simulation, a multi-institutional effort supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF) that is focused on developing quantum simulation devices that can understand, and thereby exploit, the rich behavior of complex quantum systems.
With the University of Maryland serving as the lead institution and funded by a $25 million award from the NSF, the institute brings together computer scientists, engineers, and physicists to develop theoretical concepts, design innovative hardware, and provide education and training for a suite of novel simulation devices that can predict and understand quantum phenomena. In addition to Yale, partners include Duke University, Princeton University, North Carolina State University, and researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
Yale’s participation in the institute is led by Shruti Puri, assistant professor of applied physics and a theorist working at the intersection of quantum optics and quantum information processing. Puri will apply her expertise to develop noise-aware protocols for robust quantum simulations.
