Dr. Ashley Montanaro, research lead and co-founder of Phasecraft: “Quantum computing has critically important applications in materials science and other domains. Despite the major quantum hardware advances recently, we may still be several years from having the right software and hardware to solve meaningful problems with quantum computing. Our research focuses on algorithms and software optimizations to maximize the quantum hardware’s capacity, and bring quantum computing closer to reality.
