  • At the moment my research concentrates on two specific areas: the quantum mechanical properties of black holes, and quantum computation.
    One of the most important problems in theoretical physics today concerns the microscopic source of black hole entropy. This problem is being addressed using simplified, highly symmetrical models, such as spherically symmetric higher dimensional gravity.
    The prospect of building quantum computers, whose basic operations are based on the rules of quantum mechanics, gives rise to many important, fundamental questions. We are currently investigating the relationship between entanglement and increased computational efficiency in the context of the adiabatic quantum search algorithm.
