Quantum computing promises exponential speed-up for certain computational problems—at least in theory. Recently, research groups around the world have begun constructing research-grade quantum computers composed of tens of noisy qubits. Google Quantum is one such group, where I work writing software to unlock near-term quantum computing applications.

Prior to joining Google, I worked at Rigetti Computing. Before that, I worked with Vijay Pande at Stanford to study protein dynamics with computation and machine learning. and developed scientific computing tools like MSMBuilder and MDTraj for analysis of molecular dynamics data.
