- Co-founder and the Deputy Director of the Institute for Quantum Computing
- Founding member of the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics
- Director, CryptoWorks21 NSERC CREATE Training Program in Building a Workforce for the Cryptographic Infrastructure of the 21st Century
- Professor, Department of Combinatorics & Optimization, Faculty of Mathematics, University of Waterloo
- Fellow of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR)
- Fellow of the Institute for Combinatorics and Its Applications
- Member, Centre for Applied Cryptographic Research and Institute for Computer Research
- Professor (cross-appointed), David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science, Department of Physics and Astronomy and Guelph-Waterloo Physics Institute.
My research is on harnessing quantum physics for information processing, with particular focus on:
- the power and limitations of quantum computation
- cryptographic tools that will be secure in a world with quantum technologies
- applying tools from computer science to advance the implementation of quantum information processing.
I am very fortunate to be surrounded by many outstanding colleagues at IQC and PI, researching the foundations, applications and implementations of quantum information processing, and working with other distinguished researchers in related areas such as cryptography. This makes Waterloo a wonderful research and learning environment for students and postdoctoral fellows.
