Professor Makrand's broad research goal is to understand the scope of applications of quantum algorithms, both in the near-term and long-term. This includes understanding the structure needed for quantum speedups, showing provable quantum advantage as well as designing classical simulation algorithms. He is also quite interested in the connections between quantum computing and other areas of physics and mathematics.
