Dr. Núñez-Corrales develops mathematical physics and computational methods to unveil statistical physics aspects governing complex multiscale stochastic systems, or strongly-coupled, heterogeneous open systems whose description requires events at multiple scales and whose action is dictated by irreversible thermodynamics. To interrogate these systems, he harnesses higher algebra representations, stochastic methods, agent-based modeling (ABM) and more recently quantum computing to perturb them in theoretically clever and computationally efficient ways to extract useful properties and dynamical limits of the systems in question. His emerging work in IQUIST focuses on realistic simulation methods for quantum devices, developing high-level programming models beyond quantum circuits, and exploring applications of quantum computing to biomedicine.
