I am a Chancellor's Fellow (UK equivalent of tenure-track assistant professor) at the School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh (starting fall 2023) and at Quantum Software Lab. Before that, I 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. I received my PhD from the University of Edinburgh under the supervision of Elham Kashefi and Myrto Arapinis. I completed my M.Sc. and B.Sc. in physics at Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran.
My research area broadly covers quantum information theory, quantum computing and their intersection with cryptography and learning theory. In the big picture, my 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.
Here I share time to time some news, paper highlights or scientific stuff I find cool!
I'm starting my new position as a Chancellor's Fellow at University of Edinburgh this fall.
We put out a new paper with Armando Angrisani and Elham Kashefi where we propose a new framework for quantum differential privacy with a novel quantum neighboring relationship.
A very cool easy-to-read paper about what kind of problems we hope to see quantum advantage for. Highly recommended!
