I work as a Quantum Computing Applications Researcher at IBM Quantum. In this role, I collaborate with quantum computing startups to drive research projects looking at possible near-term applications of quantum computers, as well as tools for improving performance. Prior to joining IBM Quantum, I received my Computer Science PhD from the University of Maryland Baltimore County in 2016, where I worked with Sam Lomonaco on quantum complexity theory of hidden subgroup algorithms. In 2006, I received a BSc. Engr. in Computer Science and Engineering from the Shahjalal University of Science and Technology.
